Tree cutting

People live close to the trees. They demand beauty from the trees and a natural outlook but some never care to give back to the trees. During their lifetime, the trees will age, deform in shape and even die just like humans do.

The History of the Christmas Tree

Have you ever wondered about the roots of the Christmas tree as you’ve been decorating it? We all know about the main symbolism surrounding Christmas, but how often have you stopped and wondered about the tree?

In this article, we’re going to look at some of the key events that have led to the tree becoming one of the first things we think about when we start to decorate for the Christmas period.

Most people today associate it with the resurgence of Christmas during the time of the Victorians, and with good reason too. However, the link between trees and decoration goes back thousands of years before that.

It’s known that the ancient Egyptians used to decorate their homes with leaves from the palm tree, and this also became a tradition that the Romans would continue, but they’d use the conifer rather than the palm tree.

It was a 7th century Devonshire monk that linked the triangular shape of the tree with certain religious aspects when he was teaching in Germany. It was from Germany that, ironically, the Christmas tree made its way back to Britain, and, in the 1840’s became a symbol of Christmas for both royalty and the common man.

One of the first decorations to appear was the candle. It is said to have been used in Riga in 1510 to represent the twinkle of the stars in the night’s sky. The variety of decorations flourished in the 16th century.

The common theme of these early decorations was the fact that they tended to reflect the wintery weather outside. From the early 1600’s, through to the middle of the 1900’s, a tinsel-like decoration was used that was made of real silver and was supposed to represent snow.

The popularity of the tree in Britain took off when Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, and the family were portrayed around a Christmas tree in the 1846 “Illustrated London News.” When carpets were invented in the late 19th century, both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of German ancestry, took it as part of their Christmas tradition.

Most of the decorations around this time were expensive, and, seeing as the majority of people couldn’t afford to decorate their whole house, they would take the cheaper option of decorating a tree.
