“I think we should get a big Christmas tree this year,” said Fawn.
“Seriously,” said Spot. “I was hoping that we would get a small one.”
“No,” said Fawn. “We have so much more room in our barn on the ranch here in Calgary.”
“It isn’t the issue of room,” said Spot. “I know we have plenty of room. The issue is that a big tree takes a lot of work to decorate.”
“I will look after decorating the tree myself,” said Fawn.
“What about picking up all the pine needles that fall on the floor,” said Spot. “That takes a lot of time.”
“I think you are just looking for excuses,” said Fawn.
“You know,” said Mr. Hansen, who just walked by the barn and heard part of the discussion between Fawn and Spot. “There is no reason why you can’t have two trees, one inside the barn and one outside.”
“That is such a good idea,” said Fawn.
“Yes,” said Spot. “It is a good idea.”
Fawn went outside and he decorated a big beautiful pine tree outside of the barn. Spot decorated a much smaller tree inside the barn.
“That is a beautiful angel,” said Fawn to Spot. “I would love to have an angel on the top of my tree.”
“Your tree is so tall,” said Spot. “You would have to ask Mr. Hansen to get his ladder out.”
Fawn asked Mr. Hansen if he could borrow the ladder.
“I am afraid my ladder won’t reach to the top of your tree,” said Mr. Hansen.
Fawn was disappointed but he knew Mr. Hansen would help him if he could.
Christmas morning came. Fawn went outside to plug in the lights on his Christmas tree. He looked up and he was shocked to see an angel sitting on top of it.
“I bet it was Santa that put it there,” said Spot.
“That makes sense,” said Fawn, happily.
“I must admit that your tree does look nice,” said Spot, standing back to admire it.
“Thank you, Spot,” said Fawn. “Yours looks nice as well.”
“Merry Christmas,” said Spot, giving Fawn a hug and a kiss.
“Merry Christmas to you as well,” said Fawn.
