Need Help with Literary Quiz

I'm working on a quiz, and there are two questions that I haven't been able to answer. Anyone know the answer to these two questions? If you answer one, and I win, I'll share my prize with you.

1. Who got a dress with stylish sleeves for a special Christmas present?

2. What classic Irish novella set at Christmastime ends with the main character standing and watching the snow falling?

Admit it, you couldn't have done it w/o REWahoo's help!

The prize is 10 PaperBookSwap credits (i.e. 10 books). Winners are chosen at random from those with the correct answers. There were four questions total.

May be a trick question as "The Dead" may be considered a novella on its own. Btw the movie does it justice.
