Summary: Steve Rogers' first Christmas after he was defrosted.
A/U: Day 4 of the 30 Day Drabble Challenge.

Steve opens each present with caution, not sure what kind of presents he'll receive. Tony gives him an iPod. He doesn't think it was worth it because the music of today still confuses him. He's not sure what he's supposed to like. He gets clothes, like the wool sweater from Agent Romanoff, and he stares at the bottle of liqueur Agent Barton gives him. Everything seems like a joke to him, but Steve isn't sure what should be taken seriously.

Someone, probably Agent Coulson, insists on the decorations being paper snowflakes. Steve is reminded of the ice that enveloped him for over 50 years, keeping him safe but simultaneously isolating him from the people he loved.

Nothing seems real anymore. He wonders if the 21st century is actually a dream, and he's waiting to wake up to the 1940s.
