A joyful reimagining of the Hans Christian Andersen seasonal classic.

A young girl ventures out to sell matchsticks to raise money for a Christmas gift for her grandparents.  While out she gets lost and is discouraged that she has not sold any matches. On her journey home she is greeted by a snow queen and little snowflakes that make her cold. Using her matches, she warms her cold fingers and toes. The flames from the matches cast shadows on the street reminding her of all of her favorite things about Christmas. Through each of her favorite memories she is finds that the best part of Christmas is not the gifts but in the time spent with her grandparents, family, and friends!  Ultimately, she is reunited with her grandparents and they hold a lovely Christmas party with all of their closest friends.
