Samantha decided to go carol singing on Christmas Eve. She knocked on the door of a house and began to sing. A man, holding a clarinet, opened the door to the house. In a few seconds tears were streaming down his face
Samantha continued singing for at least a further ten minutes. She sang every carol she knew. At last she stopped.
“I understand,” she said softly. “You are remembering your happy childhood Christmas days.”
Choking back the tears the man replied, “No … I’m a musician.”
