I've been waiting for someone to have a go at Easter rather than Christmas. Your imagery of the tree being decorated is clever though it wouldn't work from a strictly historical perspective. Aside from that, your writing conveys some great atmosphere. I particularly liked this line: “A chaotic mixture of weeping and laughing fouled the air.”
This is an excellent story, suspenseful, and with a wonderful message. I like the thought that maybe the one who cut the tree for the cross was saved.
This was a very powerful image. Very good writing, though I suspected half way through, it was still excellent.
