The Christmas Tree Story
Have you ever wondered about the story behind the evolution of Christmas tree? Let’s discuss it here.
This began approximately 1000 years ago when Fir trees were first used as Christmas trees. In the start, Christmas Trees were hanged upside down from the ceiling using different chains and other support. Normally the early Christmas trees were cherry plans or branch of any plant that was put together into various pots and kept inside homes with a hope that it’d flower at the time of Christmas. People who could not afford a Christmas tree would then buy pyramids of wood and decorate them like a tree with apples and candies. Rather than displaying the early Christmas trees in homes, they were carried from house to house.
The German preacher Martin Luther is the first person we know, who brought a Christmas tree into house. According to the told stories, back in the 16th century, Martin was walking thought a forest when all of a sudden, he saw stars twinkling across the tree branches. He was so fascinated that he went straight to his home and told his kids about the whole scenario that reminded him of Jesus who left the heaven stars to come to earth at Christmas.
Christmas Tree Lights
Electric lights add a lot to the overall beauty of Christmas trees. In the early 1890s, electricity was not widely installed in homes and only rich people used to show off with light at Christmas. The electric tree lights were first used in 1895 when president Grover had a tree in White House that was all decorated with beautiful lights as his daughters were fond of lights. Artificial Christmas trees started getting popular at that time and these trees could be made up of paper, metal, glass, wood or different types of plastic.
A very popular tree at that time was a PVC leaves tree, that was also reported to be the tallest Christmas tree and was known as “Peace Tree.” Different countries use different trees as their Christmas trees.
