How Best Friends Say Merry Christmas To Each Other
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Christmas tends to be a very special day for everyone and most of us will want to offer different gifts to the people we love, as a way of showing them how much they mean to us. Because I always managed to forget gifting friends on this special day, this year I have thought about something that would make up for all of those times when I just forgot.

I and my best friend have known each other for almost 16 years and we have been together through many situations which made us even closer and reinforced our friendship. I can clearly remember the first time he took a dive in Westwood Lake only to surface with a pair of underpants on his head and made everyone within a 40 meters radius laugh for ten minutes straight. There is also the time when we went together to a store so he could ask a pretty lady out for dinner, but he blurted out the wrong line and ended up saying something about her oversized pinky finger. He was always a comedian in my book with his strange and funny way of doing things.

Taking a good and hard look at the past years that we spent together, I thought about framed prints as the perfect gift for him this Christmas and what other picture did I think about framing than the one of him with the underpants on his head in that lake? That was downright epic and the look on his face was the icing on the cake: he was so surprised why everyone was laughing and pointing at him, that he started laughing as well but once he felt the underpants on his head, did he actually realize why they were all laughing!

After I thought about using this I decided to get it framed as print for him, I knew I had to think about a special way of delivering it to his place also. His wife agreed to help with this one too! A few days before Christmas though, he must have had a feeling of something because we were at this bar and he nodded approvingly while checking out the waitresses: "I got to give it to you Mike, these girls really bring me back to that day when I switched my cap with a guy's underwear" and burst into laughter. I played along and laughed, thinking "boy does he have a knack for feeling what I have in store for him or what?". Eventually we paid for our drinks, left the bar and headed home.

The very next day, I get a call from the post man at 6 AM in the morning (strange because it was Christmas) saying I had a special package to sign for. Surprised, I checked it out, signed for it and then called my wife and tell her about it.

When I opened it, it was actually a special Christmas framed print of my face which clearly replaced his that summer when he was caught off guard with underpants hanging over his forehead! I actually laughed out loud and couldn't believe how he managed to pull this off, but in a note on the print's corner he said my gift really touched him and he just wanted to return the favor. Well, I'll say a Merry Christmas to that old friend!
