History of the beloved Christmas tree:

Christmas Trees

 

 

Ole Christmas Tree Ole Christmas Tree won't you come live with me Part One, The HistoryChristmas Tree begins in 1510, the very first written record of a Christmas Tree being decorated, comes from Riga, Latvia. Its was written that men of the local merchant's guild decorated a tree with artificial roses, and danced around the tree in the marketplace and then set the tree on fire.




In 1503, there are records from Alsace, France which was at that time Germany Territory, there were trees sold in the marketplace and folks took them home, and set their tree up undecorated.




Then in the 1600's with the 17th century, it was common for folks in Germany to decorate Christmas Trees with apples. The practice was heldover from the 14th and 15th centuries when evergreen boughs were hung with apples and were the only prop used in the miracle plays that were performed at the Churches on 24th of December.

 Ole Christmas Tree Ole Christmas Tree won't you come live with me Part One, now we step into the 1700's were folks in some parts of Austria and Germany, brought evergreen tips into their home and hung them with the top down from the ceiling of the home. They would often be decorated with apples, gilded nuts and red paper strips. Edible ornaments were so popular on Christmas Trees that they were very often called sugartrees.




We have came to the 1800's, when the Christmas Trees were introduced in the United States by German settlers. It rapidly grew from a tabletop size to floor to ceiling size tree.




In 1851 Christmas Trees began to be sold commercially in the United States.

Interesting: Definitely a long history but what especially interesting that they decorated with apples and different fruit and at one time turned it upside down. I don't get the burning but I guess they had a good reason. Our first reading of the history of the Christmas Tree.

Thank you Dale.
