|Edelweiss Flower story|
Long time ago, there was a handsome young man who wanted to climb the Alp Mountain. The mountain was so cold and covered with thick snow. People said that a beautiful fairy lived in that mountain.
The young man wanted to meet the fairy. He also wanted to see the beautiful palace made of ice. Many people tried to climb the mountain but all of them did not succeed. Some of them gave up before they met the fairy and some others could not stand the cold.
This young man was different. He could climb the mountain and did not give up. He climbed and climbed for the whole week. The weather as so cold, but he kept climbing to the fairy’s palace.
He finally met the beautiful fairy, and they fell in love with other immediately. But, the fairy was not happy.
“We can’t live together. My father would not allow me to marry a man,” said the fairy.
“Why not?” asked the young man.
“Because we live in two different worlds. I can’t stay in your world because it is too hot and you can’t stay in my palace because it is too cold. I’m afraid you will die,” explained the fairy.
Therefore, they had to separate. Since that day, the young man promised to himself that he would not marry anyone. The beautiful fairy was so sad that she cried every day. Every time her tears flowed down on the mountain, it became a beautiful white flower called edelweiss.
