Once upon a time, in a snowy New Year's Eve, there was a little poor girl saling matches.
No one had bought her matches,not even given her a penny, and she was very cold. She didn't what to go empty hand home, so she continued outside.
The girl then sat somewhere where the cold wouldn't reach her. She was so cold she lighted three of the matches. In the bright light of the matches she saw a fire place, a roasted goose and a Christmas tree.
if only we had bought her matches!
The fourth one she lighted, her grandmother appeared, so she lighted all the matches in the bundle. She didn't want her grandmother to disappear.
Take me with you!
The little girl's grandmother took her by the hand, they flew into the sky by the stars. Where she wasn't cold and no longer hungry.
The next day, some town folk found the little girl dead, she had froze to death. That New Year, the little match girl was the first to cross to a happier place filled with everlasting joy.
