legend of the bird nest

I just found out this year that an old German legend states that if you find a bird's nest in your Christmas tree, the following year will be full of health and happiness.  This was awesome news for me.  When DJ and I got married we didn't want to go the traditional cake topper route.  We decided to do a bird's nest with two little birds inside instead.  ("If you're a bird, I'm a bird.")  After the wedding I kept the bird's nest out because I knew I wanted to put it in our Christmas tree.  I thought it would be nice to always have a reminder of that day, especially around the holidays.  I had no idea that a bird's nest in your Christmas tree was a German legend, but it makes perfect sense now.  The past two years have been so full of happiness.
