The Christmas Eve Tree

This is not your average tale about your un-average Christmas tree.

Delia Huddy’s story – illustrated by Emily Sutton – tells of the wind-damaged, future Christmas tree. When the time comes, all its pals are bought and put up in various places where they look great. But no one wants this one.

In the end it is given away for free, to a homeless boy. He dresses it as best he can, and that’s when the magic begins. People gather round, there is music and singing, and the little tree is very happy.

But the end has to come, even for ugly-but-rescued trees, and so it does for our tree. Or does it?

You just never know what will happen.
