History behind the Christmas Tree

By Connor Duke and Braeden Brady

What is a Christmas Tree?

A Christmas tree is a fir tree that doesn't die during the winter. It usually grows in cold climates which is one reason we buy fake ones in Vegas.

First Christmas Tree

The first person to bring a Chrismas tree into their home was a 16th century German preacher named Martin Luther. One night before Christmas, Martin was walking through the forest, when he looked up through the tree branches and saw the stars. He took his tree home and told his family that seeing what he saw reminded him of Jesus.
