Christmas traditions, Christmas tree history
I love Christmas!
I love it when people call 1,000 years ago 'history' ... LOL .... such an infant religion laying claim to so much that isn't theirs.
are you complaining about the article?
Um ... duh. 1,000 years is short in the span of history, there are things older. The fir tree has a meaning that it more then 30,000 years old, and probably a few more that are older. Ignoring the rest of history doesn't make 1,000 old, it just makes it infantile.
I love Christmas too Willow Tree! Too bad KK had to come in here and try to shit all over your thread.
Maybe some day KittenKoder will find happiness for herself.
I like Christmas, too.
What's not to like about a holiday where you get to decorate the house, watch the same three or four traditional schmultzie movies you've been watching for a half century, drink a little too much, eat a little too much, and give and get presents with and from people you love?
I think the aritcle just said it was a 1000 years ago that it was taken on as a symbol of Christmas! That dosen't mean the rest of history is ignored.. but aside from that aren't Christmas trees beautiful? I love to see the children gazing at the lights and wonderment of them. If you ever get a chance to visit Callaway Gardens at Christmas they do one spectacular tree.
pagans would bring in boughs of trees...hence roping and such...i thought it was a sweet page....why argue about who was first etc...why not just enjoy all the holidays...
I love Christmas too WT. Some of the most wonderful and magical memories I have are from Christmas, not to mention it's the day we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
No kidding. Kitty Liter had no real need to come in here and stink up the thread.
My daughter and I are going to put up our tree today. It's our tradition, we both love it.
Our Star on top is an Angel, with her face on it. (from when she was 2 years old, it's homemade, and I STILL have it in good shape! )
