My husband gave my 6-year-old son $10. My son took the money everywhere he went — to school, to the library, everywhere. He would even sleep better with the $10 under his head. You see, he was holding out to buy something special. One day, my son and I went to the grocery store (杂货店). Outside of the store, a man was singing carols (颂歌) and ringing a bell. He had a small pot (盆) next to him with some money inside.
