    On a beautiful December day in 1739, a ship called the North Star sailed across the Atlantic.

    Her captain Oliver Bell was in a very bad mood because he had to leave his wife Charlotte and two sons Edward and Sebastian just before Christmas to steal some presents under the tree on passing ships.

    The crew noticed the captain's bad mood and because they respected him, they decided to bring a bit of Christmas atmosphere to the ship.

    During the night when the captain, tired from the amount of rum the crew had poured him all evening, slept in his cabin, the crew, the ship quietly anchored off a small island, and the helmsman, navigating officer, and sailmaker swam ashore in a small boat.

    There they cut down the only palm tree in the area and quietly carried it back to the ship.

    All night long the crew diligently searched and created various ornaments, with which they decorated the palm tree.

    When the captain woke up in the morning with a terrible headache and went on deck, he saw a palm tree decorated with various objects such as shark teeth, wine corks, chains made from tied scarves, potatoes cut into different shapes and even empty rum bottles clinking against each other.

    A starfish was attached to the topmost leaf of the palm tree.


    The captain was so moved that he gave each crew member one gold coin as a Christmas present and even opened 5 bottles of 37-year-old whiskey from his personal supplies and poured a generous portion into each person's cup.

    Their singing and merriment even attracted a flock of seagulls from a nearby island, who joined the pirates in their shrill cries.

    When they ran out of whiskey, they opened a cask of rum and continued to celebrate.

    One of the seagulls was curious about what was hidden in that mysterious barrel, so he sat down on the edge of the barrel and began to taste.

    After a while, one of the officers noticed him and chased him away.

    After all, only rum is for a pirate as valuable as gold.

    As the sun began to sink below the horizon, the singing faded, and the crew's eyes closed.

    Everyone lay down where they were, and they didn't even mind hard deck boards.

    A cool breeze blew all night and the sound of the waves sounded like a lullaby to the pirates.

    In the morning the captain woke up at dawn and when he looked around and noticed that something was wrong with the Christmas palm tree.

    He took a good look at her and suddenly it dawned on him.

    The star disappeared from the top of the palm tree.

    A Christmas palm tree can't be without a star.

    So, he woke up the rest of the crew and began to investigate where the starfish had gone.

    They all claimed they didn't take her and even though they searched the entire ship they did not find the starfish.
