Pia looked with dismay at the glass figurines given by the kind old gentleman at whose house she worked as domestic help. Not one, not two, but all of seven! What was he thinking? OMG! Elves are soooo 2009!  The children would be disappointed, but instead of complaining, Pia decided to welcome the elves. She arranged them around an imaginary tree, with trinkets carefully saved over the years. The children must have lined up their shoes as well – next morning candy-filled shoes and a tiny Christmas tree, with seven naughty faces smiling from behind its branches, stood resplendent there.
