A Relevant Fact about Christmas Trees

The Christmas tree is one of richest symbols of all times. It can be traced back to so many different cultures and times, that it is hard to point at its origin exactly.

From Japan to Egypt and from the Roman Empire to the Celts, trees fulfilled a special role in celebrations of life and light. Since the beginning of times, one could say, as even the story of Adam and Eve revolves around a tree. During the last couple of thousand years, especially around the midwinter solstice, when the days are at their darkest, people have been acknowledging the powerfull symbolic meaning of trees. Even during the darkest part of the year, juices will start to flow again, life will come back and spring is near. Some plant one or two by their door for blessing, some honor a special tree by declaring it sacred, some believe certain trees can protect from evil.

The decoration of trees as we know it only started a few centuries ago. Initially, Christmas trees were adorned with nice looking candy, which was meant to be eaten. This evolved into using decorations and lights. Electricity then took the place of candles… and we have reached the modern times! Merry Christmas!
