The Lonely Christmas Tree is born with a purpose to be cherished by someone at Christmas. When the tree is the last one remaining in the lot, the tree starts to believe that all hope is lost. A bright light comes along restoring faith in dreams and encourages the spirit to persevere. The tree is small and limp but has the spirit to find love and acceptance. This story demonstrates that all of us have that spark within us to find what we long for. Persistence and fortitude can lead us out of despair to the light that shines for all of us.
This was such a sweet story. The lonely christmas tree gets left behind, he thinks, but it turns out he was just waiting for the perfect owner. Just because he wasn’t the tallest or fullest tree he thought noone would want him. This was a great lesson in persevering. The lonely christmas tree winds up having a lovely Christmas with some children who love him. I loved reading this with my boys 🙂
