  It is said that a long time ago, there was a kind farmer, in a snow and wind on Christmas Eve to save a poor child suffering from hunger and cold, let him eat a sumptuous Christmas dinner.

When the boy left, he broke off a pine branch and stuck it in the ground with his blessing.

After the boy left, the farmer found that the branch had become a small tree, which was hung with gifts. Then he realized that he had received an angel of god.
