This is superb. Your characterization is WONderful, and you nailed the topic. Delightful, well-written story for the advent season.

A charming story! I loved your characters - very realistic. Lovely work!
I never understood "advent" although we celebrated Christ in Christmas all my life. Thank you for a beautiful look into this celebration.
Millie is a wonderful character. I'd like more stories about her. You showed your mc's emotions well. Isn't it interesting how children just can't realize that their parents used to be little!
This was delightful and reminded me of my upbringing when we did the candles in church each week leading up to Christmas.
