"Thousands of lights were burning on the green branches...


and gaily colored pictures such as she had seen in the shop windows... the lights looked down upon her. The little maiden stretched out her hands towards them when the match went out. The lights of the Christmas tree rose higher and higher; she saw them now as stars in heaven...
Blessings and faerytales from my home to yours...

Hi Amy. Thanks for sharing your beautiful tree with us, and reminding me of that lovely fairytale. It was one of my earliest that I read in school. So sad, but with a beautiful ending.
Merry Christmas.
