A lonely little fir tree grows all alone in the forest until one day a man comes and digs the tree up and carries it back to his son who cannot leave the house. The man promises to return the little tree in the spring and replant him, with the promise of continuing the tradition the next winter. Each year the tree longs for Christmas time when it is decorated and all of the children sing around it. But then one year arrives and the man doesn't come for him. But on Christmas the tree receives a special surprise---the boy and his family come to sing around him! A wonderful Christmas classic.
