In Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale, a little fir tree realizes too late that it did not appreciate the grand moments of life - the majesty of the forest, the dazzling grandeur of its night as a Christmas tree - while they were happening. So often the trappings of the holidays can obscure the wonderful everyday gifts of life around us. We forget the true meaning of Christmas. The little fir tree in this famous story learned his lesson the hard way.
