Nicholas tried to untangle the long strand of tree lights. As he tried in vain to untangle the lights so he could put them on the tree, frustration set in." I can't believe this" he said in an agitated voice as he finally gave up and threw the tangled strand into the box that it came in. " Why do we celebrate Christmas anyway?".
He heard a knock at the door. He opened it to reveal his friend, the Creator.
" Merry Christmas Nicholas".
" I don't feel merry at the moment" he said as he opened the door and his friend walked in. " I can't untangle my tree lights".
" Let me help you with that" he replied with a smile as he hugged his young friend." We have a birthday to celebrate".
" A birthday?".
" Yes" the Creator said as they slowly untangled the strand and carefully put it around the small tree." In fact, there are birthday hats in your box".
