All the cone shape trees

It's only early November and the Christmas trees are all up everywhere! I was wondering how the Christmas Tree came about and read about it in Wikipedia. It does have a long history, some that I have not heard of!

We no longer have trees in our house as we can't find a reason to link it to Christmas. What has a tree got to do with the birth of Jesus Christ?

But one reason that I just read is that Martin Luther established it to use it as a symbol of the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. Hmm..

ION Orchard Christmas Tree

About this tree, it's still in the midst of being set up. It's like snow!
I noticed it is also aligned with the other 'cone' across the road. The glass cone from Wheelock Place!

The two cones match only too well. Interesting shot! I think (natural) snow is a rarity in Singapore, isn't it?
