Ooooh...this morphed from aawwwww to eek in a second. Good stuff =) I loved it!
I know the boy must've been scared witless, but I couldn't help but laugh at the sight in my head. Excellent story.

This was very exciting. Great job putting the reader right into the scariness of it;)
Well, this was different! Very well written, you kept my glued to the screen. Poor Willie. He got scared out of his wits, but saved Christmas. Love the one eyed alligator. Great job!

Excellent job with suspense!!! I totally didn't guess that jingle came from a thief! At first I thought that, after touching the boy's toe, the thief would feel ashamed and run off, which also would have made for a great ending. But, that would have down played the tree. I love the twists and turns and the tree as hero in the end!! Great story!!!
I like the original aproach. This was an exciting read. Great job.
