This is a folk tale of how the first tree came into being. It tells of a hero Winfried with his young companion stepping boldly into the pagan right of the passing into winter. He preaches the gospel of Christ and His birth on that night; then from the heavens came a miracle that resulted in the salvation of the people. To celebrate, they brought new life or the Christmas tree into their homes.

    " 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. "

    " This wasn't at all what I was expecting based on the pretty cover-but interesting story. "

    " 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? "
