On Christmas Eve, a miserable old Spinster sets out to destroy a box of old childhood toys; but before throwing each toy into the Library fireplace she conducts an experiment to prove that there is no Christmas Spirit left. She throws four old toys into the streets to see what becomes of them only to find that these old forgotten toys, which she calls rubbish, bring out the worst in those who finds them........until she stumbles upon an old family ornament......a Christmas Angel from Miss Terry's childhood whom she and her brother often put on top of their Christmas Tree. The Angel helps Miss Terry see the error of her ways and reveals the truth behind each of her 'experiments', revealing the true outcome of each toy that Miss Terry threw out onto the pavement with a very different outcome from what Miss Terry assumed happened to each toy. Each toy that Angelina Terry throws out touches the life of a person in a very special way.¿ A little sick boy is given the gift of a Jack-In-the Box that was found by two Jewish Boys.¿ An arrogant Millionaire turns over a new leaf and gets a new lease on life when he rescues a little boy who was about to be run over by a truck when the toy Flannel Dog that Miss Terry threw out was crushed under a car.....when the arrogant Millionaire threw the dog unto the street in a haughty manner.¿ An embittered mother who lost her child finds the true meaning of Christmas and has a change of heart when she finds Miss Terry's brother's Noah's Ark. ¿ An abused child finds the true meaning of Christmas and a warm home when she finds Miranda, Miss Terry's old doll.¿ A drunken old sinner finds a Guardian Angel who helps him mend his ways on Christmas Eve. This is a charming story full of the Christmas Spirit. Abbey Farbel Brown has written a modern twist to Dickens's A Christmas Carol in an original way. I absolutely loved this story! The story is short enough to read in one sitting and full of the true meaning of Christmas.Abbey Farbell Brown, a descendant of the earliest New England settlers, was born on Beacon Hill, in 1871 in Boston. Brown attended the Boston Girl's Latin School and became intimate friends with Prescott Peabody. Abbey graduated from Radcliffe College in 1894. Also by this Author:A Pocketful of Poesies (1902).

This story is a must read at Christmas. It is short, sweet, and very inspirational.A bitter old woman goes through a box of old toys and decides to test the people who pass her home on Christmas Eve by putting the toys on the sidewalk in front of her home. She watches as those that pass her home prove her thought that there is no good in the world, no Christmas spirit. However, and old Christmas decoration, a Christmas Angel, comes to life and shows the woman that all is not as it seems.

This was an easy read. Not very long and some grammatical errors but not very distracting.
