There is this story about “The Mitten Tree,” by Candace Christensen, where this lonely older lady felt compassionate to a lone, young boy who was watching other children playing in the snow with his bare hands in his pockets. So, she decided to knit a pair of mittens for that boy. She enjoyed seeing the happiness in his face and being the mysterious giver. The lady decided to knit one new pair each day and hung them in a different branch of the tree for each child that has no mittens. Children enjoyed this gift giving game where they would search thru every branch of the tree to find the mittens of the day. The day before the winter holiday, this lady hung different color of mittens on every branch of the spruce tree.
