I like the ringing bell synth in the beginning, it gives me christmas vibes. The melody is also very catchy, and I think the bass that comes in at 00:08 has the right shape (in terms of LFO and wave sample). The changes in instruments through the whole song keeps me engaged, and contributes to the story.

Here's the meat (I'm sure you know what I mean haha): despite the different sections with new melodies, the same instruments are used indifferently in almost every atmosphere (specific mood or vibe) of the song. Because of this, I find it harder to separate (and also, because of that, to understand, and then enjoy) the different atmospheres you wanted to express through your song. Also, despite the main melody to be quite catchy, the chord progression is a little cliche and it makes the whole thing less authentic, in my opinion (stealing this last idea from TaintedLogic's reviews: if you ever see this, please don't bite me with your copyright claims dude).

As for the sound design aspect, you seem to know at least a bit about how to make your sounds seem loud, and I like the white noise you used as a means of transition between sections. On another hand, I *think* you could try to use a bit more of stereo separation on your basses. In FL Studio 20, there's a stock plugin called "Fruity Stereo Enhancer". You should definitely try to play with that if you never did. My synths went from "brrrrr" to "BRWRWR" in like two or three clicks, and I think your basses could benefit from this effect as well.

In the end, I like the atmosphere of this song and the structure of its different parts. I think you could try to put a little bit more new details in the chorus as the song goes, but otherwise this is very well made. Keep it up!
