The Story of Christmas Trees


Have you ever wondered why people use Christmas tree as a decoration for Christmas? This tradition goes back a long time, like centuries ago. Around the 1400s and 1500s in Germany, they would hold plays on Christmas Eve, which used to be called Adam and Eve Day. They would hold parades before the play and use fir trees to decorate the play. The first documented use of a Christmas tree was around 1415, and they were put up by the Brotherhood of Blackheads, an association of unmarried merchants.
