The Legend Of The Silver Pinecones

There once was a very poor family with very little food or wood to keep them warm... The mother decided to go into the woods and gather pine cones to sell for food and some to keep them warm... She picked up the first cone and heard a voice say " why are you taking my pine cones?" It was a elf, the woman then explained he whole story.... With a smile the elf told her to go to the next forest, there she would find a better bunch of pine cones... Off she went and when she had reached the forest she was very tired... She sat her basket on the ground and pine cones began falling into it... She gathered them up and returned home and when she sat them down , every pine cone turned into silver coins. So to this day always keep a silver pine cone on your hearth for legend has it, a silver pine cone will bring good fortune your way...
