In time of Christmas people usually become crazy with the purchases, dinner, the fireworks. and finally they forget the true thing. A Christmas tree is not indispensable to be able to celebrate. neither cider glasses full, nor the most uproarious rockets, nor the gifts of last fashion. They lacked three days so that finally Christmas arrived. Cristina, the mother, was proud of the lights that decorated their home, since all the neighbors said that was the prettier Christmas house of squares. Hugo, the father, was proud of the enormous tree filled with adornments and garlands. She had spent much money in him and people commented that was the most beautiful tree of all.
Sofia, the greater daughter, was proud of the enormous manger that accompanied the tree. He was really precious. and yes, the figures of Maria, Jesus and Jose were enormous. people commented that had to be the most believing family of all. The Lucas, smallest, observed everything of bad way. Definitively its festive spirit was not the same that the one of its family. people wondered themselves why she would be and simultaneously she affirmed that the young one was a thankless one, because it had everything.
Finally the great day arrived. All the family dressed elegant clothes and hoped anxious the twelve at night to make sound her glasses with a toast. But Lucas followed thoughtful in armchair. During dinner only there was silence. They ate and they were satisfied. Cristina, the mother, reproached the silence that had lived in the food and put music. Hugo, the father, was bitter because it would not have with whom to explode its fireworks, since nobody shared its pleasures. Sofia, the greater daughter, had a great doubt in its interior. then it did not understand what meant that wonderful manger. It felt that he was something more than decoration, but did not dare to ask to him anybody since several months ago it had discussed with its parents and since then the communication with them was not good.
