Children came, played across the tree, and stripped the tree of its chocolates. The subsequent day, the tree was carried into the attic and was now lonely.

Story 2: The Elves and the Shoemaker Story

The Elves and the Shoemaker is a traditional Christmas fairy tale that children love to listen to. This tale by means of the ‘Brothers Grimm is about two elves that help a terrible shoemaker. 

This story is about a shoemaker who lived with his wife in a small house. He was very poor and didn't have any cash left with him. He most effectively had a few pieces of leather left to make one pair of shoes. 

One night, he cut the leather for a couple of shoes that he thought he would make in the morning, prayed to God for a good day, and went to sleep. The following morning, the shoemaker discovered a beautiful pair of footwear on the table in his store. This pair of footwear was so beautiful that it sold for a heavy price.

For many days, this continued and the shoemaker became rich. One day, the shoemaker and his spouse were determined to find out their helpers. They found two little men (elves) who came in the midnight and made the footwear. Elves didn’t have clothes. Shoemaker and his wife decided to give little clothes to the elves to be able to thank them for their service. 

The little elves came the next night and were happy to see the garments. They wear it and pass most effectively to in no way go back once more. The shoemaker lives a satisfied and successful lifestyle thereafter and little elves are thrilled, too.
