It was late afternoon, the Christmas market was nearly over, Millie had not got her mother a present yet. She didn't have much money, a servant girl didn't earn much! She desperately tried to find something she could afford, but she couldn't. Just as she was leaving, an old woman called her back and gave her a pot made of tin. 'Polish it well, your mother will be very grateful,' she said. Millie took it and did as she was told. Mother couldn't believe it, it was real silver worth a fortune. Christmas magic does exist! They both agreed.
