I remember that it was Christmas, decorations throughout the house, especially those B suspended on a tree, which rose almost to a ceiling, decorated with colored balls and golden streamers, making it visible to my eyes, to the eyes of a girl of six who faithfully believed in magic, in Father Christmas, and in the Three Kings.

The perfect gift

I went out for a walk with my father, we went to see toys.BAs soon as I saw him, it was clear that he and no other had to be my Christmas present.a simple tube decorated with a family of bears,Which were celebrating Christmas, as the youngest wore ornaments forВthe tree: colored balls, stars full of light, angels …

The bears were then my favorite animal, I slept in a bear pajamas, I had a shirt with a picture of a real bear and hundreds of bear-shaped stuffed animals. all types, in all colors and sizes. From the brown bear to the polar bear.The polar bear of white color, who lived on ice, was the favorite of my favorites.Up to bears of singular colors, such as a pink bear, or even a bear with a red bow tie with white dots.

But this tube did not attract my attention just for the bears, when I looked through, I could see many different compositions. Odd for some people, beautiful for me. Stars becoming flowers, flowers becoming circles, circles becoming rhombuses and an infinity of mixtures of shapes and colors, so different and equal.Looking through this tube made me feel that I was able to travel to other worlds, to live a thousand adventures in a single moment.

The kaleidoscope

I could only insist on my father so that the kaleidoscope be my giftВ:

  • Dad, dad, I want this tube with the beautiful bears.
  • The kaleidoscope?, Answered my father with a broad smile.
  • Calidoque …, I said, making a very typical grimace when something awakened my hungry curiosity.
  • We are going to ask Father Christmas, but you will have to learn to pronounce his name. "Said my father, laughing.

Back home, I did not stop tryingВ (calico, calidopia, calidopia, caledocopi, caledospo …), BBut I could not do it at all.My older brother began to laugh at all the words I could invent in such a short time and insisted: "KALEIDOSCOPE.B I continued to try to learn the name, but failing to no, I felt that Santa Claus was not bringing it to me.

Finally, on Christmas Eve arrived, and when it was time to open the gifts, I felt a little sad, I kept trying to pronounce the name of the gift that I wanted, but of the calei … sprang out any other letter.В I opened my first gift, convinced that my tube with the pretty bears would not be there.But when I opened it, it was well there.As the gift I wanted, I felt so much emotion that without thinking I said: – The KALEIDOSCOPE I wanted.

Every effort makes its reward. The little girl in this Christmas story was on the verge of losing faith in receiving the gift she was waiting for, because despite her insistence the word kaleidoscope resisted her. to receive the gift and to feel so much illusion that, without effort, she finally managed to pronounce it. She will never forget how to pronounce the word kaleidoscope, nor forget that Christmas or what it meant for she.
