5.0 étoiles sur 5THE SADDEST CHRISTMAS STORY EVER WRITTEN16 décembre 2000
Par BeatleBangs1964 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is without a doubt the saddest Christmas story I have ever come across. I first read this story on my 5th Christmas and it has made me misty eyed ever since. An unnamed girl is sent out on the cold, cruel treets to sell matches by her equally cold, cruel father. She turns her income over to him and he beats her when he feels she has not sold enough matches. One night, frozen to the bone, the girl lights a match. A glorious Christmas tree appears, bright and blazing. That vision vanishes when the match burns out. The second match she lights shows a splendid holiday feast -- a Feast of Illusions. This, too, fades away when the match burns out. The last match she lights reveals her beloved, deceased grandmother. The girl runs to her, never to return to the cold city streets. The next morning she is found frozen to death in the street. This story gets to me every single time. I could never read this out loud because it is just too sad.
