an Excerpt..... page 13. Hextoo sighed. He was up again this night;Christmas Eve. Again he was looking through the perimega-scope. Staring sadly he brought the scope viewer closer to his eyes. After making a few adjustments he had it zoomed in to the blue planet Earth. They called it Azurum. Just then he heard his mother Nextoo say,"Hextoo, shut that off and go to bed. Tomorrow is Christmas day. Get some sleep. You and your cousins can look at the stars all day if you want to." "OK mom. Goodnight,"he said while shutting it down. ............
"Christmas,you celebrate Christmas?" said the boy.
