What really happens on the most important night of the year?

I am woken by a rustling noise downstairs. It sounds like leaves brushing against one another. Then comes a thump. And a crackle. The crackle of paper as it is crushed.

I wander down the stairs, anticipating what I will see. Peering through the living room door, what I see is unexpected. I creep back up the stairs and try to fall asleep.

When I wake up in the morning I know what will be waiting under the tree. It is then that I see the small box and feign surprise.
