Critiques and feedback are always appreciated as they aid my pursuit for improvement:) Thank you!
I really admire the tone of the voice, from what I can tell you seem to be a calm person, a peacemaker and It reflects in the way your story is written. I also really enjoy the way the story is told, I think it is very effective and very beautiful.
I think for you the month of december isn't that of childish magic but more giving things up for others because they are worth it, and is a very self sacrificing month.
I wish you might have spent some more time on the imagery in the first and last paragraphs, as well as putting something in the middle. The story is really beautiful and your words are a paintbrush on a canvas, just wishing for a little bit more color (figurativly speaking).
I was satisfied with the ending, and felt that it was nice, I think a bit more could have been added in there for the readers pleasure, but it was absolutely beautiful just the way it was.
This is really great, you should seriously make this into a short book! I really like it so far and with a little more fine tuning you could totally win!
Thank you for writing this, it paints a really nice picture of the holidays for you, and I can see the story as well as feel it.
