The holiday season is approaching! As we unpack our stored decorations and begin decorating for the upcoming festivities, we can’t forget about the Christmas tree! Before the creation of the Christian holiday, “Christmas,” trees and evergreen plants were used for many seasonal celebrations. Plants and trees that stayed green and alive all year round were very special in the winter to people long ago so they would decorate with them! It was believed that they would keep away evil spirits, illness, and the like.
