It’s Christmas, Carol! by Sara-Lisa Anderson 3.5/5
Carol hates Christmas! As far as she is concerned, it is just another Thursday, just another day at work. But during her workday, between 4 PM and midnight on Christmas Day, she is haunted by the kindness of strangers and painful memories as she ponders the true meaning of Christmas – past, present and future.
Who is that man with the big white beard and the jolly laugh? And why does he care if Carol has a nice Christmas or not?
A Christmas tale with a strong moral about what the true meaning of Christmas is. There is an element of Christmas magic and finding Christmas spirit.
Carol has struggled with Christmas ever since her brother’s death as a child and her parent’s divorce the year after.
During her shift at work on Christmas day, she has a magical experience that encourages her to remember the good Christmases with her brother, and to see that christmas is what you make it with people you love.
