Storyboard Text

  • Setting
  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • The story takes place in a small, run down, flat on Christmas Eve in the early 1900's. "A furnished flat at $8 per day." (Henry 99) "Tomorrow would be Chrismas day." (Henry 99)
  • Climax
  • Mme. Sofronie. Hair goods of all kinds.
  • A women named Della is counting the money that she has saved to buy a Chrismas present, but it is only $1.87. She is upset because there is nothing that she can buy with that. "Three times Della counted it. One dollar and eighty seven cents. And the next day would be Christmas." (Henry 99)
  • Falling Action
  • Even though Della and her husband Jim were very poor, they took pride in two things that they had. Della's long hair and Jim's gold watch that was passed down from generations. "Now there were two possessions of the James Gillingham Young's in which they both took mighty pride." (Henry 100)
  • Resolution
  • In order to buy Jim a Christmas present Della goes to Mme. Sofronie. Hair goods of all kinds. where she had her hair cut off and sold it for $20. After that Della went and found Jim the perfect present. A band for his gold watch. "On went her old brown jacket; on went her old brown hat. With a whirl of skirts and with the brilliant sparkle still in her eyes, she fluttered out the door and down the stairs to the street." (Henry 100)
  • Della opens her present from Jim which are clips for her hair but she can no longer use them because her hair is cut. She then gives Jim his present which is a band for his watch, but Jim tells Della that he sold his watch so he could buy her present. "And now they were hers, but the treasures that should have adorned the coveted adornments were gone." (Henry102)
  • Jim and Della decide to put away their Christmas presents because the presents aren't what mattered, but what mattered was the thought and their love for each other. "Lets put our Christmas presents away and keep em a while. They're too nice to use just at present." (Henry 103)
