While this story is a nice way to explain Christmas traditions, it is also a fable. The moral of the story is to not let life pass you by. Babushka let the opportunity of a lifetime pass by her because she wanted to be completely prepared for it. Life does not let people be as prepared as they would like to be for chances that arrive. Babushka shows us that we should take opportunities as they come, not sit and wait for them when we have finally prepared ourselves to our liking.
