A Few Feel-Good Things

It’s nearly Christmas, and I’m feeling nostalgic for holidays past, and with that, am in the mood for touching stories. Thought I’d share a few things I’ve come across in the last few days. None of them are new, I don’t think, but with the exception of the last one, which is a holiday staple for me, I hadn’t come across any of them before, so maybe they’re new to you, too. Enjoy!

I don’t know who linked to this (thank you), but it’s a story in tweets of a journalist’s experience with a couple of kids in difficult circumstances: http://storify.com/BostonDotCom/making-good-from-almost-nothing 

 

I can’t believe I’m sharing an ad, but parents of teenagers will probably like this offering from Apple:

 

From last year, but new to me, is a fifteen-year-old storyteller. Loved this.

 

And lastly, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without at least one viewing of Tim Minchin’s White Wine in the Sun.

Merry Christmas!
