Once on the summit, he discovered that a Giant, who suffered loneliness, trapped the snow. Rhémy decided to stay with him, so the snow fell down again on Courmayeur. Since then, Rhémy goes downhill only on 24th December to bring gifts to the children who will light up a lantern, and will lead him to his beloved Courmayeur».
