This week I have selected an adorable Christmas tree story. Imagine a tiny bear cub which develops a friendship with an evergreen one winter instead of hibernating. Along with him, we rediscover all the wonders of Christmas such as decorations, Christmas carols, Christmas cookies, and presents.
The evergreen explains how people feel "Christmas happy" at this time of the year. He even offers the cub a present, left under his branches. When the cub presents his friend with a gift of its own, it accidentally gets shattered into several tiny pieces. Together, they have the beautiful idea of decorating the evergreen with the pieces. A very special visitor in a red suit calls the tree a Christmas tree. The story claims that we have used evergreens as Christmas trees ever since. I for one could not think of a cuter explanation.
Sharing this book with your group will make you all feel "Christmas happy"!
