Once upon a time I was twelve and my little brother was six. We had a love hate relationship. Mostly love, but come on, he was my little brother. He still believed in Santa Claus. I did not. It was family tradition for each of the siblings to by one another a gift and put it under the tree before Christmas.

Except, this year there was a gift missing. Of course my little brother noticed immediately that I did not put a gift under the tree for him. I needled him about it a little bit, but assured him one would be there soon. It was being delivered.

Days went by and when no gift appeared, he became increasingly more anxious. I assured him it was just TOO big for the postman to deliver, so I was having someone special bring it. He was remarkably skeptical. I mean... who was this special person.

After much harassment, I finally told him that Santa was personally delivering his gift from me.


Yeh, right.

He totally did not believe me.

(But he wanted to.)

So on Christmas eve, after my brother went to bed, I gave my dad the gift to put out. He did me one better, though. Dad not only assembled it for me, but he decorated and personalized it.

The next morning, my brother's anticipation was palpable. And I was growing increasingly anxious. Because, seriously, I had totally built this up. What if he didn't even like it?

Not to worry, though. As soon as my parents gave the go-ahead, he tore into the living room and stopped in his tracks before the tree.


And, indeed, nestled into the top half of our seven foot tree was an enormous glider, complete with fancy pants electrical tape racing stripes.

It was quite a sight. But my favorite part was when he turned to me with complete awe in his eyes and exclaimed,

"Wow... you really DO know Santa."
