Juxtaposed against the wonderful joys and fantasies of Christmas are the real-life human hardships that the Child of Christmas is destined to redeem. The Little Match Girl draws us into the realities of homelessness and exposure, and then illuminates the promise of everlasting warmth in the embracing arms of Love. Then the beloved holiday story of The Gift of the Magi unwraps the sacrificial giving aspect of true love as a young married couple both exchange their most prized possessions as their singular Christmas gifts to each other.
