“Jingle bell . . . jingle bell . . . jingle bell rock.”
Danny Jamison lay in bed and hummed the Christmas song. He didn’t know all the words, but he liked this one a lot.
His mommy had told him at breakfast this morning that in just eight more days it would be Christmas. Another good thing about today was that it was the last day of school for two whole weeks. The paper ornament he had been working on at school was on the Christmas tree. Pretty soon his mom would put some presents with his name on them
