Sonny loved Christmas. Rafael... liked Christmas.
Rafael’s equivalent of “decorating” for Christmas was putting this old statue of Saint Nick on his counter and maybe a wreath on his door.
Sonny, however, likes turning his house into Santa’s freaking workshop.
The first Christmas they lived together Rafael walked into the living room and was greeted with the sight of his boyfriend surrounded by boxes all labeled “Christmas” with a Santa hat on his head and garland draped around his shoulders.
At first Rafael turned and tried to walk back into his room, but Sonny grabbed his hand and made him stay. And maybe Rafael had fun. Maybe he loved watching Sonny belt Christmas tunes while he tried to untangle multicolored light. But he’d never tell Sonny that.
