Mitten Tree Day is a holiday that might be born from a children’s story.
A friendly lady made mittens which she hung in a tree close to where children often played.
These children had no gloves or mittens and always got cold hands from playing in the snow.
Thanks to her mittens these children now could play with their hands all cosy and warm.
In some parts of the world this holiday is celebrated by making your own mitten tree.
Either by decorating a christmas tree with mittens and other warm clothing items, or by hanging those items in trees already available on routes where people with cold body parts often walk by.
These mittens, scarves and hats can be used by anyone who needs the warmth.
Mitten Tree Day is a day of freely giving warmth that we can easily miss to those who are cold.
