Innagural Winter Short Story Festival 15:27

Sketch by Gregory D. Rothbard
The Wager of Gerald O’Rourke: A Christmas Story by Francis J. Finn, S.J. (1859-1928) – 00:27:34 

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?"
