The legend of the Christmas Tree
It was Christmas Eve and had been snowing. It had stopped in the afternoon, and now the sky was full of stars. A woodcutter was coming home through the woods. It was late and it was dark while he was still in the forest.
The man stopped to rest, then looked up and saw a small fir tree reaching for the sky. Thousands of little stars seemed to be resting on its branches, as if it was covered in silver threads. The woodcutter was astonished at the unexpected scene. He cut the tree and took it home, where his wife and two children were waiting. Like a miracle, the stars had remained on the branches of the tree. The woodcutter's house was illuminated by the small brilliant fir during all Christmas Eve.
