It is a lighter that is specially made for the Big Green Egg cooker he has. However, if you need some SERIOUS hair bounce, this thing might could do in a pinch.
One more very interesting happening of the night: as we were finishing up dinner, and getting T.Mark ready for his bath, we heard bells outside. We looked out the front door, and apparently Santa had decided to stop by! He came in, saying ho-ho-ho and Merry Christmas, stayed for a minute to take a pic or two with T.Mark, and then handed us a giant stocking full of small toys like play-doh, balls, a tiny airplane, and others. This all happened extremely fast, and he left right after he handed us the stocking. Everyone looked around, assuming that the others had orchestrated it. But none of us had. We still have no idea how it happened or where he came from.
So there's a little Christmas magic for you!
