One of the most amazing things David Copperfield has ever seen happened one winter when he was still a child.
Copperfield says he begged his parents to stay home in New Jersey for the holidays so he could see snow. He prayed for it night after night, and then it finally came."I ran outside and laughed and cried," he said. That was when he discovered "if you believe and want it enough, nothing is impossible."
Copperfield said his late grandfather taught him his first card trick. "That was when I decided to make magic my life," he said.
