The History of the Christmas Tree
Have you ever wondered why we decorate a Christmas tree every year? There are many origin stories on how trees became a part of Christmas tradition. Here’s just one story I found while I was researching this (after my six year old asked!):
The first person to bring a Christmas Tree into a house, in the way we know it today, may have been the 16th-century German preacher Martin Luther. A story is told that, one night before Christmas, he was walking through the forest and looked up to see the stars shining through the tree branches. It was so beautiful, that he went home and told his children that it reminded him of Jesus, who left the stars of heaven to come to earth at Christmas.
