What is the significance of the Christmas tree to Christians?
- The shape is a triangle – signifying the trinity and pointing up to God.
- Evergreen – eternal life
- The needles grow upward like hands praising God.
What a lovely tradition the Christmas tree is!
One of my favorite posts it from last year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This was my 2nd blog post and it was really short and simple. From December 18, 2008:
The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a magical time. It is when we turn our thoughts from our everyday lives and reflect on our blessings. It is when we make an effort to spend time with friends and family. It is when we decorate our homes with trees and lights and ribbons. It is when we become like children again believing in wonderful things, like, God as the Christ child, peace on earth, love for one another and hope. It truly is a time that we should keep in our hearts year round.
