Christmas traditions

In our home it is a tradition to wake up between 3:00-4:00 A.M. and try to sneak past my parents bedroom and down the stairs to where Santa had dumped all the loot. Unfortunately we were never successful and my father would send us back to bed until 6:00. One Christmas we all got up at the appointed 6:00 A.M. and started to unwrap our presents. I was very excited because I got the dump truck Ihad asked for and the gun that sparked when the trigger was pulled. My father looked especially tired this year and kept commenting on how he felt like he had just gone to bed. I was getting ready to unwrap my next present when my mother called into the living room to have my father come look at the clock on the stove. Immediately after seeing the clock, which read 2:00 my dad realized that he and the rest of us had been tricked. My oldest brother had waited just a litle under an hour after my parents had gone to bed and pulled off the greatest feat of all. He had successfully crept through te house and changed all the clocks in the house ahead 4 hours including the clock radio that was on the night stand next to my sleeping father. He would have gotten away with it except for the clock on the stove. As it was we all got sent back to bed for another 4 hours except my brother who had to wrap all of the presnts over again. We all had a good laugh that morning and every other since then about how my brother pulled off the impossible.
