Day 4: Tiny Love Stories for the Holiday Season

The holidays are a time of joy and celebration but also often spur feelings of loneliness and longing. As editors of the Modern Love column, we aim to publish stories that illustrate a truthful variety of experiences: happy, sad and bittersweet. We hope these six Tiny Love Stories about memory, bravery, desire and connection capture the emotional complexity (and intensity) of the holiday season. Thank you for reading.
