Hans Christian Andersen’s classic Christmas tale “The Little Match Girl” first appeared in print in 1845. Though superficially tragic, this renowned story emphasizes more directly the Match Girl’s faith, her visions of goodness and abundance, and the unfailing love of her grandmother. On that wintery night, it was the Match Girl who felt heaven’s warmth and comfort, not the passersby who ignored her plight.
