Once upon a time there was a little boy called Michael. He had a poor family, but he was happy with everything he had. It was Christmas Eve and he was very excited.
This year he wanted to stay awake to see Santa Claus. Michael waited but Santa never came. Suddenly he heard a noise, it was very loud and strange, like a bomb. He went outside and he couldn´t believe who it was, it was Santa! He fell from his sleigh and the presents were all over the floor. It was a big mess! The boy helped Santa but he was unconscious. Michael needed to do something, and fast. So he organized the presents and put them on the sleigh with Santa. He decided that this year he wanted to deliver the presents to the children all over the world. No child could be left out. He started to fly. The delivery was going well until he stopped at the last house, it looked like the child was awake and he was in trouble. No one could see him delivering presents.
Everyone wanted to see Santa. He hid behind the Christmas tree and put the presents under it. Another child saw that there was someone behind the tree and… suddenly Santa appeared and threw the boy some dust and he fell asleep. Michael was very happy for two different reasons: No one saw him, and above all he saw Santa! He finally stopped at his house and went to sleep. He dreamed about that night until the next morning. When he started to open the presents, there was a little one that said: to Michael with love from Santa. Michael didn´t understand at first, but he finally got it. There were only two people in the entire world that understood its meaning and they were Michael and Santa.
