Very well written! This kept my attention the whole way through. So sad, yet with a positive reminder of what Christmas is truly about.

O thought you moved from the drip drip srip of the needle to the drip drip drip from the eyes really well. It held my attention throughout.
Very touching, kind of bittersweet. You held my attention the whole way through.

The emotions in this are so real, and I love the use of the drips to move the story along. Very nicely done.

Not the usual countdown to Christmas that people expect to make. This poignant story is touching, well-written, and a reminder of how little we REALLY need to feel blessed on Christmas day.

Oh, so sad, but this is true for so many people. We went through this with my husband's dad before Christmas. Just isn't the same as it is for everyone else. Let's not forget the sick and weak during this season...well done.

Congratulations on a well deserved EC. What a very moving story. And a necessary reminder of how people still hunger for the raw message of Christmas among the razmatazz of the commercialism and materialism on offer. May we not fail to share Him with those who are searching!

Beautifully written through out, but my favorite image is the one of his being "touched" by Christ's joy and comfort through the music. I also loved the message of joy's power. Unique, yet very appropriate take on this topic. Great job!

Superbly written and nice twist on the topic. I was stirred emotionally from start to finish with this piece--and that's great writing. Love the message within--Christmas is about the love, peace, hope and joy brought to us through Jesus. Congrats on your win.
