The Legend of the First Christmas Tree

The Night Of The Saviour's Birth All The Living Creatures, Both Flora And Fauna, Came To Bethlehem With Gifts
The Olive Tree Brought Its Fruit And The Palm Its Dates
But The Little Fir Tree Had No Gift And Was So Tired It Couldn't Resist When The Big Trees Pushed It Into The Background And Hid It From View

But Then A Nearby Angel Took Pity And Commanded A Cluster Of Stars To Come And Rest On Its Delicate Boughs
When The Baby Jesus Beheld This Lovely Lighted Tree He Smiled And Blessed It
He Declared Henceforth That Fir Trees Should Always Be Filled With Lights At Christmastime To Please Little Children
