This little guy, Nick, pictured on the right, gave what, from a 3-year-old’s perspective, is the ultimate gift. See that Ziploc he’s clutching? It is full of all of his pacifiers … symbols of babyhood, true comfort, and yes, a baby’s oral fixation. To Nick, they were his most prized possessions. And that is what he gave to Santa. It was a trade-off, actually. In return, Nick is to get an extra-special gift on Christmas morning, as a reward for his sacrifice. He also passed a milestone in growing up … and a Christmas at the Indiana State Museum that he will never forget!
