I now I’m biased but that’s how I’ve felt since yesterday evening, when I got the most perfect Christmas gift (in my family we give each other presents on the Christmas Eve).
(I’m in the middle of preparing Christmas dinner, so I’m gonna skip details and go to the most important part of my story.)
Anyway, I was opening my presents and found some rather useful ones, some funny ones, a book by Tolkien (obviously), and one volume of manga.
One volume of manga which made me really happy because seriously, parents seldom buy things like that. I thanked everyone, saw what others got and this was supposed to be the end of that evening. And then my mom gave me a box and said, “I forgot to put it under a tree.”
I found these inside:
All volumes of this particular manga that are available in Poland! I felt like crying and got a little bit too emotional. My hands were shaking, I couldn’t speak, started counting them and putting them in order… I probably looked like that:
I don’t remember the last time I was that emotional. And it wasn’t just about the fact that I got all of them, it was also about this element of surprise (I found out later that it was planned) and the fact that I got them from my parents. I still can’t believe it!
I have to go. But I want to wish you all the best Christmas/Hanukkah/Solstice/end of this year ever! Be merry!
