Thirty-nine days until Christmas... A man knocks on the door of the Secret Santa Association, where Kirsten works. Looking somewhat sad, with eyes filled with pain, he says he’s there to help. But judging from his looks, he doesn’t seem the type to volunteer. She sends him away, saying, “All we need is fifty children’s jackets. There’s nothing else you could do right now.” And he returns with the jackets shortly after. Who is he? Did God send me a handsome and compassionate man?

I wanted to like this manga but I really couldn't. I enjoy Christmas and the idea of 2 people volunteering for a organization that gets children presents on christmas and falling in love while working together is cute. I also really enjoyed the part where the male main character came up with ideas to make "impossible dreams" a reality. That is what brought the story up from 1 star to 2 stars for me. However, the "Nobody's suffered more than me." shallowness is irritating. He is told to find someone who has suffered more than him and help them in order to find a reason to continue living (super depression is not fun for me to read). So he finds the lead female and helps her. However, I fail to realize how Being dumped once in college and deciding to keep the village's children's unfulfilled wishes and your own impossible dreams close to you so you can wallow in your depression is greater suffering than someone who was with their whole family when they all died from drowning during a storm. That's just complete ridiculousness. Still, it did have a cute ending with them dressing up as elves. So all in all if they changed out the characters personalities but kept the ending it would have been much better. The art is good though.
