The Christmas Tree history is sometimes stated to be as recent as the reformation of Martin Luther. In fact it goes back much further in Christian history. Christmas is celebrated all over the world with great fervor marking the birth of Jesus Christ.
The meaning of the Christmas tree is interpreted in many ways. The most popular beliefs are that the needles of the tree point towards heaven symbolizing man’s connection with the Lord, and since it is an evergreen tree it signifies abundant life throughout the year.
Trees and branches can be made purposeful as well as symbolic. The Christmas tree is a symbol
of a living Christmas spirit and brings into our lives a pleasant aroma of the forest. The fact that balsam fir twigs, more than any other evergreen twigs, resemble crosses may have had much to do with the early popularity of balsam fir used as Christmas trees.
