Special Heartwarming Holiday Stories

1. The Brownies Sash

A few years ago I participated in a storytelling project in the month of December. The theme of the event was “gifts” and I told the story of how I had received a Brownies uniform and manual from my grandparents for my 7th birthday, granting me the opportunity to be in a troop, only to be faced with a horrible troop leader who freely told the other girls that she didn’t like me and would only hand out badges on days when I wasn’t there. My story concluded with revealing that after one year in Brownies, I only had one badge. All the other girls moved on to the next level of Girl Scouts… I did not.

My mother was at the storytelling event and two weeks later for Christmas, she handed me a small gold box. Inside was a Brownies sash, adorned with every single badge a girl could earn and accompanied by a three-page letter explaining how I had earned them. I was so touched, I cried. It was the most beautiful and thoughtful gift I ever received.

2. The Forgotten Present

I was about 8 years old and it was a couple days after Christmas. My mother had found a present she had bought for me in her closest. Instead of just giving it to me and have that be that, she snuck out on our back deck and threw it on the roof. My parents called me out and showed me this gift, and my dad got a ladder and spotted me while I got it down. I still remember the butterflies thinking, Wow he really came! Santa was up on this roof and this fell out of the sleigh!” The gift was a pink Barbie camera. I’ll never forget that feeling

3. Random Act of Kindness

I was about 10 and my family was really struggling financially. It was a few days before Christmas and a stranger rang the doorbell and handed my dad a wrapped box. We all sat at the table and my parents opened it to find a envelope full of cash, as well as gift cards for myself and my three siblings. My parents asked all around to try to find out who did it but to this day we don’t know. It’s touching to know people do things like this not for praise but out of the goodness of their hearts.
