The peddler, for most of his life, wandered alone, selling the rat traps he made and surviving. He was often shooed away and never respected or treated with compassion. He ended up developing hatred towards other humans and labelled the world as a rattrap. Everyone in the story was alone. The crofter sat there near the fire by himself and Edla and her father were the only two at home. He was taken by surprise when someone treated him well. He was taken aback when the crofter, ironmaster and Edla cared for him and respected him, as a human. It was Edla‟s kindness and compassion that changed his outlook on life forever. She invited him for the Christmas dinner, despite knowing the fact that he was a poor peddler and was excited to serve him as a guest in the home.
