NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Reuters) - The nuns of St. Cecilia's congregation, who inadvertently "stole" a Christmas tree last week, have finally returned it to its rightful owner. "We're glad there's a happy ending to the story," said St. Cecilia's Stephanie Sundock, adding that the tree's rightful owner was "gracious" about the mistake. The story began when maintenance men sent to pick up a tree donated to the order and left on the porch of a home returned with the wrong tree. The nuns discovered the mistake when the owner of the donated tree called wondering why it had not been picked up. The maintenance men initially could not remember which house they took the tree from and the embarrassed nuns turned for help to the local newspaper, which printed a plea for the owner of the tree to contact the nuns. But the workers involved in the incident finally identified the tree's home and returned it to the owner.
