The Little Match Girl is a short story by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, which was first published in 1845. The story is about a dying child's dreams and hope. The story begins on a cold winter night; a small poor girl is trying to sell matches because she was ordered to do so by her strict father. She tried to sell matches, but because of the cold, she died on the frozen sidewalk. She tried to warm up with the matches which she held in her hand. When she lit each one of the matches, it pointed to those events that she always dreamed of.  The most common was a dream of delicious food and warm clothing, but every time matches were extinguished, the magic would disappear. When she lit the last match, she saw her dead grandmother who loved her a lot and finally took her to heaven. Read this sad and endearing soul-stirring book with a cup of Shanti Chamomile Tea to make you feel calm and at peace.
