No research for me. Yet! This is a little more comfortable for me than the last round.

29. d.  I think you may be giving me an unfair advantage with all these Christmas Carol questions (not that I'm complaining!)

30. a?

31. I haven't read that story in ages. But c sounds really familiar and certainly Andersenesque. I recently saw a great holiday play/rock concert thing called "Striking 12," put on by a band called Grooveley, that is based on The Little Match Girl. There is a biographical song in it about old Hans called "Screwed Up People Make Great Art." Like a fool, I didn't buy the CD at the show and now I can't find it anywhere.

32. b
