The Little Matchstick Girl is from a Hans Christian Anderson story. In a nutshell, the little girl is thrown out into the cold by her mean father to try and earn some pennies on the street by selling matches to passerby. It's very cold and no one buys any matches, so she decides to use her matches to try and keep warm. When she lights each one, she has a vision of her kindly (but dead) grandmother which lasts for the duration of the match flame. As she burns through the matches, her vision of being with her grandmother grows stronger, and she doesn't feel the cold anymore. The next morning the little girl is found frozen to death on the street with an angelic smile on her face. Such an uplifting and cheerful story, I know. It was the theme for last months posts on Gum or Mints, and I thought I'd post it here as well.
