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..
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!
