I really enjoyed the sprites and the backgrounds--very pretty!

The little stories were also great, and it was heartwarming to see a family gathering at the end when I thought there were female and male snowmen, and baubles in the shape of a tree.

And the opening and closing cats were the cutest and coziest!
