Mark took me to Georgia to see the great-great-grandson of Charles Dickens re-create ghostly scenes from A Christmas Carol. Dickens arrived in a horse-drawn carriage to the sound of bugles. He was wearing a top hat and tails. He cavorted around the dining room first as Scrooge, then as Marley, then as Fezziwig, then as The Ghost of Things to Come.

So my faith in Dad never having enough money to buy things for his children kept my hope alive for years. I Then I got married. "Uh-oh," I thought "If Dad has been playing Santa, this is going to be a rotten Christmas for gifts. Dad's in Wisconsin and I'm here in Florida and even if Dad can afford presents, he certainly can't afford presents and plane fare." But on Christmas morning, there were plenty of presents from Santa under the tree. Now I'm 46. "That's pretty old," I tell myself.
