It was Christmas Eve and Tinker, the squirrel, was in his little wooden house inside the old oak. “Ah!” he sighed again and again… Mrs Figouritsa, the bunny, heard him and asked him kindly “what happened?” “Everyone in the forest will decorate their house, but I don’t have anything to put on mine”, answered the squirrel sadly. “Don’t worry about that Tinker, you have to believe in miracles”, answered Mrs Figouritsa, the bunny, and smiled back at him.
The same evening, when Tinker went to bed, Mrs Figouritsa, the bunny, together with Mr Ricky, the mouse, did all the decorating. They put lights all over the branches, hung colorful ornaments and even wrapped gifts. The next morning, when Tinker woke up, he looked outside his window and couldn’t believe in his eyes!!! His old oak was so beautifully decorated! It was exactly what he has always been dreaming!! He also recognized a big man wearing red clothes next to the oak shouting at him “ho ho ho merry Christmas Tinker!” and then he disappeared in the sky! Tinker was so happy that tears of joy came out of his small brown eyes. He thanked his friends and enjoyed the best Christmas ever!!!
