11Y11M 10Y2M 最悪のクリスマス The worst ever Christmas!

I believe this is Aratakara's last letter to Santa... アラタカラのサンタへの最後の手紙かな・・・。

Takara is explaining what he found in the socks...... タカラがクリスマスソックスの中身について説明しているところ。


It was me who had been too busy to take care of this matter. I was too busy with visitors and work to do Christmas shopping till 24th Dec. On our way back from dinner at Tsunami village, I pretended to go to the toilet and got off the car in front of Gurney Plaza. It was already at 9.30. I had only half an hour, but I managed to get some small stuff. I walked back home and popped in every single shop, 7/11, petrol stations, cafes, etc. to find appropriate chocolate or biscuits. I got some and went home.
I wrapped them and carefully threw away all the sings. Ready. Jason told me he had some small presents already prepared. That’s fine, we can put both.

The window at the sitting room was unusually slightly open. Arata’s letter to Santa contained a kind line, “I want xxx but if you can’t find it, don’t worry too much.” Some milk for reindeers and biscuits for Santa were there.

On the Christmas day, boys get up very early. I noticed them already up and about. I went to the sitting room with a camera to hopefully capture boys’s smiles. Well, but Takara was upset. “This chocolate was in my Christmas sock. I saw it in the freezer. If the chocolate is gone, it must be Daddy!”
I went to the bedroom where Jason was up and browsing the internet, and quickly told him that Takara had found it out. Jason said, “I didn’t know boys look at the freezer.” Of course, they always look for ice cream, etc. in it. 

I was the worstly affected one. I always looked forward to seeing my sons’ very happy faces on Christmas mornings. It’s suddenly destroyed. No more innocent smiles from next year? Oh, so bad! I wanted to finish their childhood in much better way. 

I still couldn’t give up and told Takara, “probably Santa comes to only cold countries….” He replied, “then Daddy thought it’s pity on us and worked very hard in the last couple of years for us.” But in the early evening, when he was angry about something else, he said, “all adults are liars!!” Then he cried. I cried too.
