A young lad wants to make sure he is up for Christmas Mass. No one believes he will get up? So he makes a wager with his friend of four dollars, that he will indeed arise without assistance before any one else wakes, by 3:30 AM! This is a great traditional Christmas Story, about a boy who will break the malaise and sleep that usually plagues him. The story answers the question, "What good do little events have on the grand scheme of things?"
