His name is George. He’s the mailman and he’s delivering Christmas mail. He’s very elated to be doing his job. I used to drive a mail route, a challenge in the winter time. We always had our snow shovels with us. It’s a very snowy place. It could be Connecticut, the Midwest or the Dakotas.
There might be a book in that package. The book is for the wife. Its title is Jingle On. I hear birds singing and Christmas music coming from the house. He might be delivering money to the kids.
Mail is very important. When I was in the Navy the mail took a very long time to catch up with us. One month there would be nothing. The second month there would be nothing. Then the third month the mail would arrive. It was a happy time! I was a Navy medic and experienced lots of sorrow so receiving mail meant a lot to us.
I think there might be candy for the children in the package. He looks so happy. He thinks, ‘She’ll be glad to get this!’ When they receive the package the people are going to be so happy. There could be books, candy, money or toys. Kids are going to open the packages with joy and smiling on their faces. They’re going to have milk, cookies and chocolate on their faces. HOPEFUL THINKING!!!
The children are opening their gifts and enjoying their gifts and eating the food they got. They children will say thank you!
