The Truth Behind The Christmas Tree

Have you ever wondered where the Christmas tree tradition began? The first person tot 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.

Love is the Light of Christmas

Today we look at Christmas lights and thinks "Oh, those are pretty." But the tradition of lighting lights in the winter months didn't start off with aesthetics in mind. December is the darkest month of the year with the shortest days. People living without central heating in the 12th century were understandably unhappy when the sun went down and plunged them into the cold depths of night. Brian Murray's article tells us that back during the winter of 1184 was the first recorded lighting of the Yule Log in Germany. The burning log was seen as a symbol, of the sun's promise to return. It probably didn't hurt that a big burning hunk of wood makes for a pretty good heat source.
