The Tradition of the Christmas Tree

The Christmas Tree is one of the most popular Christmas decorations in the world. The origins of the Christmas Tree are pagan: it seems that it is connected to the ancient custom of many cultures, mainly Nordic, to decorate the trees of Paradise with ribbons, torches, small bells and votive animals to symbolize the renewal of life. At the base of the legend of the Christmas tree there is a story from Northern Europe. It is said that, during the Christmas period, a woodman saw in a forest a beautiful snowy fir tree, magically illuminated by the winter sun and wanted to recreate the effect for his young wife sick. He cut off a young fir tree and took it home, where he loaded it with festoons of paper and luminous candles. The first known Christmas tree was decorated in Tallin, Estonia, around 1400. For a long time the use of the tree was limited to Northern Europe, then the tradition spread throughout Europe and the fir appeared for the first time in Vienna around 1800, then in France and later in England. The first Italian Christmas tree was that of Queen Margaret: the queen decorated the tree at her residence at the Quirinale in about 1860. Originally fruit trees were used, symbols of ParadisoTerrestrial, but later they preferred to use evergreens, to which magical properties were attributed, to which apples were hung to recall the tree of Knowledge of Paradise. It is said that one year, due to a bad harvest, a glassmaker from Strasbourg thought of replacing apples with glass balls, thus giving life to the custom we know. currently the variety of decorations for the tree can be defined as almost infinite, both for the shape (balls, bells, candies, angels ....) and for the material with which they are made (glass, wood, fabric, papier-mâché, felt ...).
