This is an unthinkable celebration of a Christmas that is without evergreen for the living in the room and decorating a room with different ornaments and wrapped all gifts. In most Christmas traditions, including the celebration of Christmas itself, we all know the origin of the Christmas tree that can be shown in the pagan of the tradition. In fact, we say that this is not only for Queen Victoria, the most powerful monarch of her time.


Pagan Origins of the Christmas tree


Long before Christianity, there are appeared in the Northern hemisphere and they can be used as evergreen plants to decorate their homes, offices, towns, cars, everything and celebrate it with full of joy. On December 21 or on December 22, the day becomes the shortest and the night becomes the longest. At this time of the year that returns with the sun god that has been a weekend during winter and the evergreen during winter and the green plants supposed to be the sign of god that the summer was to be expected.


The cosmic time was celebrated by the Egyptians who filled their homes with palm rushes in honor of the god Ra, who had been at the top of the hawk and wore the sun as a crown. In geographic regions, the cells embellished their priest temples with evergreen boughs that mean everlasting life. more within the north, the Vikings thought that evergreens were the plants of the ladder and therefore the god of lights and peace. within the ancient Romans marked the solstice with the fest that was referred to as a Saturnalia thrown for the hour of the Saturn, god’s agriculture, for that they will embellish their home, temples, and alternative places.

These evergreen paradise trees are often accompanied by a wooden pyramid that is made of branches and that can be held by a rope. In this pyramid, some families would light candles for family members. These would be a precursor of the modern Christmas lights and the ornaments that along with edible things like gingerbread and gold covered apples.


Some of them say the first to light a candle to stop a Christmas tree was Martin Luther. Legends have it, in the late evening around Christmas time, there was a Luther walking home through the woods when he was struck by the one innocent beauty and fir trees.
