Did you know? The origin of the Christmas Tree is obscured by uncertainties of oral history from pre-literate European cultures. However, according to Christian lore, the Christmas tree is associated with St Boniface and the German town of Geismar. Sometime in St Boniface’s lifetime (c. 672-754) he cut down the tree of Thor in order to disprove the legitimacy of the Norse gods to the local German tribe. St. Boniface saw a fir tree growing in the roots of the old oak. Taking this as a sign of the Christian faith, he said “…let Christ be at the center of your households…” using the fir tree as a symbol of Christianity.
