Martin Luther found the Evergreen to be the perfect tree to celebrate Christianity. It’s three points represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is a very beautiful tree, it’s scent is sweet and meaningful (Much like yesterdays Cookie Day) even though some of us are allergic to them.

Since it grows nearly everywhere, it is available to nearly every society and often associated with a fresh coat of fallen snow. There are a number of reasons why the Evergreen was selected to celebrate the season with.

I know, I know… this is a shameless plug of a short novel I wrote. (Available on Amazon.com) But I like to think that it could be the truth. It is another example of why the Christmas Tree has become important to a large number of us. It is a symbol, just like Santa and the Gingerbread House.

And if you haven’t gotten your tree yet, it’s time! You will want to enjoy it for as long as you can and keeping it in your house until Feburary might be a little weird.

How to celebrate – Take the family out and find your Evergreen. Plant a tree this year so you have your own Christmas tree for next year. (Or the year after) Decorate your tree with items that have a true meaning to you.
