The Christmas Tree
Lulu.com, 2007 - 88 pages
This book's creation was done by chance. A group of my co-workers were discussing Christmas and why decorations, trees, and other customs are practiced. Have you ever wondered the same? One question was regarding the Christmas tree. Where did the idea originate? Whom might be responsible for the tradition? Was a person responsible for the tree or was it a cultural phenomena that grew. I am going to ask you to think back to your first memory of Christmas. It probably includes a memory of a decorated and brightly lit tree surrounded by colorfully wrapped presents. A smile always can be seen on even the most selfish and bitter person when viewing a well designed Christmas tree.
