They packed the ornament with great care and love. Such was the ritual for the past ten years. They got into the car and drove all night alternating between singing and being in deep reflection.
They arrived at the house and had a few beers. They then unpacked the ornament and made their way to the spot. They kept their eyes closed for a minute and then placed the ornament on the tree. It was never an easy thing to do. They waited for his appearance for two hours but he never did appear. False hope would keep them going for another year.
