This 1967-era Double-Dare Action Hot Wheels Racing set gave kids the chance to use gravity to let their cars fly. In writer Walt Kozlowski’s case, the little Hot Wheels flew down the bright orange tracks and disappeared under the refrigerator.

The day after is always the same. The house is a mess. Things are broken. Tiny pieces of colored paper are all over everything. Some people are feeling a bit under the weather.

No, I’m not describing the day after New Year’s Eve and the drinking it involves. I’m talking about the day after Christmas in a house visited by Santa.
