Laurence (NOT Larry) is a complete grinch during the holidays and doesn't want anything to do with Christmas. But given the choice between losing his job and being assigned to a committee to raise money for foster kids, Laurence decides that even he can deal with Christmas for a few days this year. Things are complicated by Nick Kringall, the new division manager and head of the committee. Laurence finds himself attracted to Nick, who loves everything Christmas, and discovers that maybe Christmas isn't so bad after all.

This is one of those short stories that I really wish had been a longer story. Don't get me wrong, it's super cute and I enjoyed it a great deal, but I would have loved to learn more about the characters (like what happened to Nick's fiance, or if Nick actually isSanta Claus ;)). The story isn't perfect - there is a lot of head-hopping (switching POVs without clear delineation), which can be more than a bit annoying, but this story is just adorable that I could overlook that. ;) It gave me the warm squishy Christmas feels, and it was a perfect addition to this year's advent calendar.
