The Little Match Girl is a story of a little girl looking for love and warmth on freezing New Year’s eve. Each time she lights a match she has visions of the lovely things she desires and needs, while being a victim of cold weather as well as the cold hearts. The story reminds us that we all wish for things during the holidays, but for those that have nothing it is more of an actuality. It is also an indictment of the evils of rampant capitalism that disregards community and kindness. So forget the New Year’s resolutions of joining the gym and finishing that novel, and instead, reimagine the Little Match Girl where all her match visions are of burning down capitalism.
