Christmas: It brings out inner boys, turns men to mush

Any family can tell you: Excited anticipation of Christmas, and then the joy of giving and receiving gifts, isn’t at all restricted to kids.

Husbands become little boys upon unwrapping the latest tech or hottest tool. And fathers turn to mush at the touching trinkets made with love and pride by their little ones.

We want to hear from guys — or their families — about the gestures and gifts that thrill them most this year.

Share your story with us on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning by contacting Bee staff writer Nan Austin at or (209) 578-2339.
