Default O' Christmas Tree

Perhaps the most beloved Christmas traditions is the custom of the Christmas tree.
Christmas trees have been a part of celebrations worldwide for thousands of years.
Ancient Romans view the trees as a sign of life in the midst of winter.
In Great Britain in Victorian times, trees were decorated with candles to represent Stars.
In Germany, the first Christmas trees were decorated with edible things, such as gingerbread and gold covered apples the first person to bring a Christmas tree into a house, in the way we know it today, may have been the 16th century German preacher Martin Luther.
A story is told that, one night before Christmas, he was walking through the forest and looked up to see the stars shining through the tree branches. It was so beautiful! He went home and told his children that it reminded him of Jesus, who left the stars of Heaven to come to Earth at Christmas.
One thing for certain, whether big or small, white or tall, Christmas trees bring the magic of Christmas into our hearts and into our homes.
