Christmas Fairy Tale is the story of forest-dwelling creatures who decide to help the Moon and the Evening Star Venus to repair the village church after it has been hit by a grenade. The animals want to repair the church so that returned migrants can celebrate Christmas there. Throughout the story there is a clear guiding principle that reminds us that only kindness, solidarity and humanity can overcome evil and make life kinder and more compassionate.
