It is said that around sixteenth Century, the German evergreen pine branches to the furnishings in the house, and later, the German missionary Martin Ruud put the candle on the fir tree in the woods, and then lit, it looks like to guide people to the Bethlehem stars, like two thousand years ago, the three Magi found Jesus in accordance with the stars in general. Today, people have used small light bulbs instead of candles.
A long time ago, a farmer, met a poor child on Christmas day, he received a child, the child when he left pine root inserted in the ground and immediately turned into a pine tree, hung above a gift to farmers in return for the kindness.
However, the Christmas tree really appeared at Christmas, first seen in Germany and then introduced into Europe and the United States as an indispensable ornament for Christmas. They usually use colorful lights, wax, gifts or angels to decorate Christmas trees, especially those living in the northwestern part of the United States. Because of the abundant forest resources, they will choose a real tree as Christmas tree. The Christmas tree has a wide variety of natural pine and cypress Christmas trees, and artificial Christmas trees and white Christmas trees. Every Christmas tree is covered with dazzling decorations, but there must be a huge star at the top of every tree. It's like a star guiding the eastern three doctors to find Jesus. And in traditional customs, only one owner of the family can hang the star of hope.
On the night of December 25th, my mother took me to the supermarket, and the supermarket door was in front of the people.
There is a plastic Christmas tree in front of the supermarket, a tree covered with white and riotous with colour paper, cotton, there are a lot of shining stars like the bulb. That Santa wears sharp red hat, wearing red clothes, where to squirm, say hello to the people. Everyone has a good look, and no one wants to leave there.
