Sweet story that the lights comforted the MC. Lack of some descriptions left questions for me. Was unsure of the age of the child at the time(s) of the events remembered, might have made story more tender. Not clear on the personal relationships of the MC - why the husband was so indifferent to her grief; was the mother running from Christmas memories or hurtful relationship with this daughter, etc. Not really important to the story's meaning of the lights for MC but might have given more reader sympathy for the MC. Just my thoughts. :)

Not all of us were lucky enough to have a "Papa". what a special person he was. Your love for him came through...and you began passing that same "display of love" to your child. Excellent!
