I love the parallel stories. It is so easy to take things for granted, especially around Christmas. I think you nailed our materialistic, selfish, me-centered culture. Off setting it with Sam and Dean's Christmas helped show that the season is about way more than how much stuff you get. Good job with this one.

Aww, this was beautiful. I loved the juxtaposition of the normal reactions of teenagers to their Christmas presents compared to what the Winchesters were doing. It made it that much more wonderful. :)

"You lost points on a school assignment to make something for me?"
Man, this was so sad to read. The parallels in it hurt :(

Bratty kids. I'd much rather have something homemade, or something fixed than a bunch of crap. And getting a DVD player or a phone for your birthday?! Oh, poor babies.

Their poverty is something that could easily make them bitter but it doesn't somehow.

A very sweet story. It was kind of horrifying how realistic all those other kids sounded.

Outstanding! The way you showed how shallow the other kids getting Christmas gifts were compared with the Winchesters with their homemade presents and abiding love made this an extremely powerful story.

This was a great christmas story. You write everything perfect, the spoiled kids conversations were spot on. Happy new Year!

The sad part in this is all those spoiled kids who don't even know what they're missing. I bet for all their "deprived" childhood, the guys knew more pure joy than a lot of their peers. Very nice reminder in an original way.

Kids are oftenly asking for the world! Very good "quotes" by the way. I love to see the differences between the boys and the spoiled kids. :)

Excellent fic! A nice holiday extra. The sad thing is that the so called normal teenagers whining about their "sucky" xmas haul is not that far off the truth. Sometimes I want to drop kick a few of them into a place where suffering truly exists so they can appreciate what they have. It's not what you have but what you do with it that counts and the Winchesters have mastered that philosophy several times over. Happy New Year!

Great plot, and I loved the method that you used to tell it -the snippets of dialogue worked not only to contrast the lives of Sam and Dean with those of other kids, but it also showed how shallow some people can be. And I liked your title, too -it fits really well.
