Christmas Trees

The first thing most of us think of around Christmas time is the Christmas tree. It is the focal point and starting point for decorating our homes for Christmas and a fundamental part of Christmas traditions. The idea of celebrating events using evergreen fir trees has been used for thousands of years. The Romans used Fir Trees to decorate temples, and Christians use them as a sign of everlasting life. 

Christmas trees rose to mainstream popularity across the UK and America during the industrial revolution, after first being showcased across churches and households throughout Germany since the 16th century. They would originally be decorated with candles and small edible items such as apples, berries and nuts and would be used in church plays to represent the ‘paradise tree’ from the garden of Eden. These edible decorations would start to transform into less perishable ornaments such as baubles, which would replace, although still represent, the apples on the ‘paradise tree’.
