Of all the Christmas tree ornaments turned out that year, very long ago, only one had a happiness. His name was Noel, and at the very moment he was created, old Herman, the glass blower, received truly joyous news. Elise, his only daughter, had just given birth to a baby girl. He was a grandpa, at last! And being quite emotional for a glass blower, Herman cried for pure joy. It was Noel's good fortune that that one merry tear became part of him.
