My name is Editio.My story began a long time ago... in a place a few light-seconds from here.I was born on the planet Uto. It's a planet that revolves around the Earth.If you don't know Uto it's no wonder, because this tiny planet was deserted until the day my father discovered it during one of his explorations. He fashioned it in his own image and it's constantly evolving.
Let me tell you about the night I saved the magic of Christmas.It all began on a mild December evening. Fat snowflakes were falling from a lovely sky where the light was retreating before the darkness. I was sauntering through a big park, where kids were having a great time. Some were making a giant fort in preparation for a mammoth snowball fight, while others were building a snowman.In the middle of the park stood an enormous fir tree covered in paper chains and multi-coloured lights. I'd always dreamed of having a tree like that on Uto. Then I noticed a little girl sitting alone on a bench in front of the tree. Unlike the other children, she seemed sad. I decided to go and speak to her.
