This week’s fairy tale was a short but not so sweet one. It’s a short Christmas tale about an old Oak tree. One Christmas Eve, the Oak tree dreams about all of the plants and animals it has known throughout its lifetime. The Oak tree discusses how they have seen many, many days due to its long life. However, a storm rips at the old Oak tree and it ends up dying. Sailors that used the tree as a landmark were sad to see it go.
I thought this was a strangle little Christmas story. It did have a deeper religious message which was shown through the sailors singing a song about Christ’s love and eternal love.
