Christmas & Christmas trees

The use of a decorated tree has its origins in customs of different cultures. Evergreen plants embody vitality. The Encyclopedia Britannica cites the use of jewellery by evergreen trees, wreaths and garlands as a symbol of eternal life among ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Hebrews. In Roman antiquity, the houses were decorated with laurel branches at the turn of the year. In the Mithras cult, the sun god was honoured by decorating a tree at the winter solstice. Fir branches were hung up at the time of the winter solstice also in northern regions in very early times. The green symbolizes the anticipation of the return of spring, after the day of the longest darkness.
