One year, my family wasn't doing very well financially. My dad had lost his job, and my mother had already told us not to expect much for Christmas that year.
When my dad's sister (my aunt) found out about this, however, she had far different plans for us. Her and my uncle bought me and all of my siblings Christmas presents that year -- so many presents, in fact, that I remember the entire couch being covered in my gifts alone. It was a very special year and memory for all of us, and one I will never forget.
