The life of a fir-tree.
Compared to the other trees around him, he feels small, spindly and short, and he wonders ‘when will he truly be alive?’ When he sees humans cut down trees nearby and then drag them across the snow, he asks the swallows, ‘Where are they going?’
In answer they tell him of all Christmas’s splendor and beauty of which those lucky trees will soon be a part. Yet when the time comes for our little fir tree to have his turn, he’s taught an unexpected and irreversible lesson.”
