Noel is about a Christmas ornament filled with Happiness.
On the day that he was made, the glassblower's tear of happiness fell with a tinkling sound inside.
He lived through many Christmas seasons hanging on the Christmas tree. But as the years passed, the children-things grew up and the Mother-and Father-things grew old. And one day the Father-thing said, "Aw, let's not bother with a tree this year."
But nothing is truly over when one has a Happiness. And so one happy day, years later...a new family moved in.
But Noel had grown weak. His once-sturdy hook could no longer support him...Noel fell to the floor and was smashed.
But then a Miracle happened. His body was gone, but his Happiness was released. Little Noel had become the pure joy of Christmas.
I hope you enjoyed my first day of Christmas Picture Books.
Come back tomorrow for day two!
