Once upon a time, in a faraway country there lived a peasant woman. She was so old and poor that she couldn't even afford to buy what she wanted to. But despite being poor she was kind hearted. Her husband has passed away a long time back and she lived with her five children. On the other hand, was her neighbour. She was also poor but extremely mean. She had five children too and her husband had also passed away. But she was totally different from the kind hearted lady.
One day, the kind hearted lady was passing a path when she suddenly saw a small burrow. She peeped into it and saw twelve small men (dwarves). The dwarves stepped out and she was surprised to see them. The dwarves asked her that "Which month do you consider as best?" The old lady kindly replied, "Well, I like all the months. January and February bring me snowfall and my children love to make snowmen. In addition it waters my garden so all the lovely flowers can grow in spring". Two dwarves gleamed with excitement. The old lady continued, "And I love March, April and May as they bring spring and summer, the lovely flowers, butterflies, trees, I love it". Three other dwarves became happy. "And I love June, July, August and September. The warm sunshine, the pretty wildlife. Oh, just so beautiful." Four dwarves steeped aside happily. "October and November are so pretty with red, golden, orange and yellow leaves. I love it so much". Two dwarves were glad. "And December, well, it ends the year with Christmas, A lovely day". The last dwarf smiled.
The dwarves rewarded her with a basket filled with gold eggs. The old lady took them happily. While, she was telling her lovely story to her children, her neighbour overheard the conversation. But unfortunately, she only heard that she got the eggs, from the burrow from the dwarves, but not how?
The greedy lady rushed to the burrow in search of the dwarves. The dwarves stepped out and asked, "Which month do you think as best?" "Well, none, January and February are so cold and I have to clean the road daily. March and April are so not good. May, June, July and August are so hot. September is a nuisance. October, November and December are also not good. The dwarves groaned angrily but they still gave her a basket and advised her to open it on returning home.
When she got home she saw that the basket was filled with stones. She was disappointed. On one of the stones was written, "LOVE ALL MONTHS. GOD HAS CREATED THEM".
Do you know why????? Because the name of the twelve dwarves was January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December respectively!!!!!
