The story begins with the scariest creatures in the universe attempting to kill Santa. Along the way, a skeleton (referred to a few times as [[FunetikAksent "skellington"]]) puts on Santa's outfit, the police are called in when Santa appears to have been replaced, people attempt to analyze items scientifically to discover the beauty in it. Children play an important role in stopping the villain and restoring Christmas, as well as providing the foundations of existence for the Boogeyman.

* Alternatively, ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'' clearly states that the reason why doctors can get away with gross malpractice in the Discworld but vets can't is because human life isn't worth anything while a good racehorse can be worth thousands. Using that scale, the match girl's life isn't worth anything, so the Hogfather is free to return it.

* How about this; Nobby and Visit took the girl to the watchhouse where everyone else was celebrating, kept her warm, fed her, maybe Commander Vimes paid for her lodging to live through the winter, and five years later, she became a lance-constable in the Watch.

present? As for the economics factor, who says that life's value equates with monetary value? Only the Assassins' Guild, and by their standards the life of some poverty-stricken little girl might rate about the same as an apple and a crudely-carved wooden toy, so it's a fair transaction.
