Legend of Juniper
Juniper is another of the trees who offered protection to the holy family. After hearing of the birth of a baby destined to be king, Herod issued a command to have all new born baby boys killed. The family fled from the manger. As they were traveling, thunder began to rumble and lightning pierced the sky. They asked the trees to offer them protection, but they refused for fear of Herod's retaliation. The humble little juniper bush bravely offered shelter to the family, and they were safe, warm and dry during the storm. The juniper's reward for its bravery was to remain ever green. To this day, juniper is known for providing shelter from storms and lightning.
