The trees and bushes had dressed with white veil,chimneys exhaling their black breath. The birds were shaking as if they were brushing off dirt from their clothes .Everyone was busy adorning themselves for Christmas. The four siblings were sneaking out of their balcony grill and deciding what to play next.Jim exclaimed ‘Ohoy! let’s make this Christmas memorable.Tim asked ‘How?’.’It will be a competition of making caps for ourselves.Will you all play?’said Jim.The other three replied in assertive .
Everyone ran towards the basket whose mouth was filled with wool. Sim, stepped back and waited thinking one-fourth will be left for him.Unfounately, his brother’s were not so as he thought. Jim the eldest brother took the most ,followed by Tim and Rim. Sim only got a handful of wool. He thought his cap would become small and he will loose the competition.
All the brothers were now set for turning their wool to yarn .They requested their grandma to spin wool to yarn.Grandma readily agreed and began spinning for each of them.Sim requested Jim to confer him some wool.Jim denied making an excuse that he is older than him so his cap would require more wool.Then he went and requested Tim,the second oldest son in family . He thought Tim is younger than Jim so he would require less and might offer some to him.Tim denying his request told, ‘if I offer you some then I will be in shortage. I have taken as much as I need”. Poor Sim was all disappointed and went to his third brother who was his only hope .Rim ,the third brother readily agreed and gave him the half he had.
Grandma spinned all their wool to yarn.The competition was then at the last phase.They all were determinedly knitting it to cute caps for themselves.
All the caps were knitted and the competition was over.”Let’s see who wins”said Jim grinninly who was all confident about his victory as he took ample amount of wool.”So, now let’s take a photograph wearing our caps” he added and started calling his father for clicking their photograph. “Dad? Dad where are you? Please click one photograph ,it’s going to be memorable “. He turned to his brothers and said “Remember boys, if your caps fit you perfectly you won!!”.
Sim took his cap and started walking on air!! His cap fitted him perfectly!! He noticed Rim, and he was also standing cheerfully. Sim and Rim started searching for the other two as they had got disappeared.” Ohoy Sim they are here!”Rim shouted . Jim and Tim’s caps were slightly bigger than their heads and they were looking funny wearing them. Sim and Rim, the winners started laughing uncontrollably . Seeing them laugh so much the losers too started laughing until a shutter sound was heard. A memorable photograph was captured in their father’s camera.
