This tale, portrayed in the dark detail of the eighth-century, tells of old foresters, who desire to cling to the past, and a bright, young Christian who comes to teach them about the birth of Christ.

    " Free Kindle short story. An 1898 retelling of Saint Boniface taming the wild tribes of Europe in 724. He replaces the ancient oak dedicated to Thor with the everlasting fir. Wasn't really impressed. "

    " Another Van Dyke story I read on my Kindle during Christmas. An interesting sort of mythological look at 8th century Europe and the conflict between pagans and Christians. "

    " short story of how Christmas tree came to Germany to replace the oak of Thor. Van Dyke as a poet paints a good picture and the story builds nicely but ends a bit abruptly. My daughter said, wait that's it? "
