The After Christmas Tree is a story by Linda Wagner Tyler. It is about how a family‘s sadness of saying goodbye to their Christmas tree, and the holiday season, prompts them to throw an After Christmas party. They send invitations, go skating, and re-plant their tree outside, decorating it with edible ornaments for the wild animals.
This is a wonderful story to read after the holidays and would complement a winter, Christmas or re-cycling theme.
