This time of year always brings back awesome memories, one phenomenon that happens every year is how my dad’s ears get pointy as Christmas day gets closer and closer. Now, I know what you are thinking. “She can’t be serious, it’s the trick of the light or false ears taped or glued on.” I have witnessed them with my own eyes. I touched them and looked at them in daylight and under different light fixtures around the house. As Thanksgiving draws near they start to point and by the time mid-December comes along they are pointed just like an elf. Sure, they are not as big but they are definitely pointy. My younger 6-year-old self-thought my dad was a part elf and perhaps one of Santa’s human helpers. He watched as I did naughty and nice things and report to Santa if I made the cut for the nice list. At least, this was my thought process at this young age. Why else would he have pointy ear?! So as the day gets closer and if he is on the nice list his ears get pointy. It baffles me still how after all these years they still get pointy. Going from smooth and rounded to pointy in a months time.
Do you have pointy ears or know someone with them? Do they get pointy ears as Christmas gets closer?
