Kabe had been dropping hints until Joe finally decided to take Kabe to the forest to cut down a tree. It is their first Christmas together and they wanted to make new memories.
Light Me Up implies to more than lights on a tree. To grasp the true meaning of the title, I suggest reading the first book Hard Fall followed by Spin Out. Kabe remembers the holidays spent with his grandmother, she was his only supporting family member. For Joe, who grew up in a frugal household, exchanging cards and dinner was the extent of his celebrating.
James Buchanan’s Light Me Up is a heartwarming enjoyable short story.
