An adolescent boy stands patiently in the back of the long line of children waiting to sit on the lap of their local Santa Claus. Why is he there? What does he intend? What mysterious hopes does he hold for this holiday season? The answer arrives following a cryptic interaction between the two, when the reality of the boy's awareness and the goals of the man in the red suit become clear.

Perfect Christmas Gift

My father was a "Santa's helper" for most of his adult life. He loved Christmas, children and well written prose. He would have approved of this story. Thanks Mr. Bradbury for being a master story teller. You brought the things I love together in this perfect Christmas Gift.
