Pagan Christmas Tree

Long before the advent of christianity plants and trees that remained green all year had a special meaning for people in the winterdiscover the history of the christmas tree from the earliest. Pagan derived decorations that are still seen at christmas time include the green leaves and red berries of holly mistletoe and wreaths. Some condemn the christmas tree because they believe that the custom of cutting down a tree erecting it in the home and decorating it is a pagan custom.
