Good morning! We’re only on the second day of Advent but somehow Christmas seems awfully close.
Today, here’s a little snippet from Louisa May Alcott’s short story “Christmas Turkey and How it Came.” In this story, siblings Kitty, Tommy, and Sammy take it upon themselves to orchestrate Christmas for their overworked parents.
To make enough money for Christmas, Sammy shoveled snowy walkways while Kitty sold little wreaths of holly. This particular vignette shows a little act of kindness that probably meant the world to the receiver.

Okay, that’s all for now. Have a wonderful day, everyone! May you have the opportunity to show someone else the kindness that you would wish for yourself.
