The Story BehindMore than just a building, windmills offer a glimpse into history and the future. Originally created to mill grains, grind spices, pump water and saw wood, windmills today can transfer energy to power our homes! Found across the globe, the Dutch are known for having over 1,000 windmills across Holland.

The Dutch Windmill
My Christmas tree is the tree of fond memories. My little heart always beat faster when, riding in the family car toward Ocean Beach, we would come upon the Dutch windmill. Many years would go by, then, my life crossed lives with my man from Amsterdam, and we have lived happily ever after. I did get to see the Dutch windmills in the wilds of Holland eventually. Now this Christmas, the windmill honors the tree.
