Christmas tree for animals

by sisters Kotryna, 11, and Fausta, 4 years old, Lithuania

The idea was my own. When it was the first day of Christmas I thought what if animals in the forest would have a Christmas tree. My sister wanted to help, so did my dad. We all hung up food for the animals and there we go! On each twig, like a Christmas toy, we hung a piece of bread and a couple of apples. Under the Christmas tree we added carrots, potatoes, and a couple more fruits. As we left, we breathed fresh forest air. By doing good deeds, we become better ourselves. Thank you for this project I will make sure to always participate in it!!
