Warm hands signify a warm heart in “The Mitten Tree” by Candace Christiansen. It’s a tale of generosity.

Old Sarah, whose children have grown and moved away, longs for the company of young people. She watches the neighbor children leave for school each morning, but they pay her no mind. When Sarah notices that one boy has no mittens, she knits him a pair and hangs them on the blue spruce tree near the bus stop.

Thus begins a tradition of sorts, with Sarah leaving woolly surprises for each child on the “Mitten Tree” throughout the winter. While mittens make for a unique choice of ornamentation, there’s no wrong way to decorate a Christmas tree! This special symbol is near and dear to the hearts of many and the star of the show when it comes to holiday decorating.

This year, why not re-imagine your tree by blending old traditions with new ideas. Make it a fresh and glorious tribute to your family, each of your distinct personalities, and the place you call home.
