The Little Match Girl... A Feminist View. - Page Text Content

FC: The Little Match Girl A revised edition.

1: There once was a girl in search of some light. She left her home which was not so warm- and when she returned---She brought the Sun with her...

2: It was a cold winter's day. A little girl's parents sent her to sell some matches in order to get money to feed her family.

3: Though the little girl's family was poor, she had a great light inside of her that made it easy for her to sell matches to feed her family.

4: The little girl was used to working hard. On this specific day, she felt sad, because no one was buying matches. For it was the day before New Years, and she didn't know where to go.

5: The little girl was so very cold, it was hard to keep warm. So she was smart enough to decide to use the matches to warm her cold hands.

6: She saw lights shining in the windows of all the houses, and she so wished to savor the warmth...So she had an idea!

7: The little girl lit her matches and noticed with each light that she saw great beauties with each flame.

8: She saw herself inside a home filled with love and light.

9: She saw herself feasting on foods of plenty...

10: She pictured herself under a beautiful Christmas tree...

11: She burnt three matches...and realized that she had to get herself moving. As she knew she had to sell some matches. Her father knew she was capable of doing that so well.

12: She thought of her Grandmother, whom she adored so much. Her grandmother was a powerful and wonderful woman. She was the best saleswoman she knew...But sadly she had passed away.

13: The little girl knew her grandmother would come up with a plan to sell those matches...Even on a Winter's day.... So the little girl waited until her match went out and ventured to town...

14: She found herself coming across a bunch of peddlers, and they all traded with each other their goods on this cold day... | Everyone was kind enough to share their wealth....And bring a smile to the little girl.

15: She traded her matches for a whole entire family meal of grain bread, roasted potatoes, and smoky goulash soup... And when she was on her way home on that cold winters day...

16: She envisioned the Sun---- And thought about how warm this meal would make her family feel....

17: The little girl felt so blessed to have traded her matches to feel her family, and she knew they would be so proud of her smart tactics....

18: So the little girl found a blessing on that Winter's day... And she carried this vision of her grandmother with her for the rest of her life....

19: Her parents were so proud of her to find a clever way to feed her family that New Year's Eve...

20: And when the little girl got older- she started her very own match company with a handful of peddlers she met, and was able to buy a beautiful home for her family with a beautiful warm, warm fireplace...

21: And they all lived happily ever after...In a warm and love filled home thanks to that smart little girl...
