A CHRISTMAS TREE - CHARLES DICKENS
THE ARABIAN NIGHTS

lady makes signs to the two kings in the tree, who softly descend. It is the setting-in of the bright Arabian Nights.
Oh, now all common things become uncommon and enchanted to me. All lamps are wonderful; all rings are talismans. Common flower pots are full of treasure, with a little earth scattered on the top; trees are for Ali Baba to hide in; beefsteaks are to be thrown down into the Valley of Diamonds, that the precious stones may stick to them, and be carried by the eagles to their nests, whence the
traders, with loud cries, will scare them.
Any iron ring let into stone is the entrance to a cave which only waits for the magician and the little fire that will make the earth shake. All the dates imported come from the same tree as that unlucky date with whose stone the merchant knocked out the eye of the genie's invisible son. My very rocking-horse-there he is, with his nostrils turned completely inside-out!-should have a peg in his neck, by virtue thereof to fly, away with me, as the wooden horse did with the Prince of Persia, in the sight of all his father's Court. Yes, on every object that I recognize among those upper branches of my Christmas Tree, I see this fairy light!
On the lower and maturer branches of the Tree, Christmas associations cluster thick. Schoolbooks shut up;
cricket-bats, stumps, and balls, left higher up, with the smell of trodden grass and the softened noise of shouts in the evening air; the tree is still fresh, still gay. If I no more come home at Christmas-time, there will be boys and girls (thank Heaven!) while the world lasts ; and they do!
Yonder they dance and play upon the branches of my tree, God bless them; merrily, and my heart dances and plays too!
-Abridged.
