Эту историю много лет назад услышала от мужа. Мы тогда были молодоженами и к нам впервые на Рождество приехала моя мама. Мама так эмоционально восприняла эту историю, что потом часто пересказывала ее за рожественским или новогодним столом друзьям и близким. Ладно, не буду дальше тянуть и расскажу ее вам так, как услышала от своего мужа.
Why There is an Angel on top of the Christmas Tree?
The newest Angel was given the task to deliver Christmas trees to homes all around the world. She carried hundreds of trees to homes that were remote and needed the Joy of Christmas. After a full day of dragging these trees and giving them to homes across thousands of miles, she saw the lights in a little home far in the north and decided that she would give her last tree to that family for their Christmas.
She dragged the tree to the door of the house and knocked. A white haired woman in a red and green apron opened the door and asked – “What do you want?” in a very sharp voice.
The Angel told her “I give Christmas trees to families. I have one tree left and then I can go back to heaven and sing all of the Christmas carols that I love with the Angel Choir.”
The lady looked at the Angel and looked at the tree and said: “The last thing I need this late on Christmas Eve is a tree to decorate. I spent all day wrapping thousands of presence for my husband, Santa Claus. I fed him, his reindeer, hitched the reindeer to his sleigh, helped load all of the presents onto the sleigh, then I had to help bathe, feed and put all of the workshop elves to bed. I just get one minute for myself and here you are with more work – a tree to decorate. I don’t want it. Take it away.”
There were tears in the Angel’s eyes. “It is cold and dark here. I have traveled all day and this is the last one. Please, please take this last tree as your Christmas Tree so I can finish my task. If you don’t take what ever should I do with it?”
And with that – Mrs. Claus looked at the little Angel and looked at the tree and told the Angel: “I don’t care what you do with that tree. As far as I am concerned you can stick that tree up your little Angel ass!”
And that is why there is an Angel on top of the Christmas Tree.
