In the end of the Giver it describes how Jonas and Gabe finally make it to the top, my question is what really happened? I mean i know there was a sled there and he slid down the snowy hill on it but after that what happened? I've disscused it with some other people and I'd like to share our theory. We believe Gbe is Jonas' guardian angel like in the bible the head gurdian angel is Gabriel. We think he was watching over Jonas and that the giver is God so to speek. We think when Jonas arrives else where its christmas which is the birth of Christ! So that was our theory but i still don't know.........let me know what you think.
