Christmas Tree Coloring Pages
Has it ever crossed your mind why we use evergreen fir tree for Christmas? Don't worry. If you haven't really thought about it, you're not alone. I too have never given it any serious thought until I've got to write this post. So I researched and I found out that the habit of using evergreen tree for winter celebration dates back even before the birth of Jesus. Pagans used to decorate their houses with the branches of evergreen tree during the winter solstice to help motivate themselves that Spring will come up soon and they'd be free of the cold air. So that's the story with the Pagans and their tree. What about Christians? Well, in 2004 Pope John Paul explained why evergreen tree becomes the symbol of Christ. First, it emphasizes the undying life of the Christ himself because the trees stay green even in winter. Second, it reminds Christians of the "tree of life" of Genesis 2:9, an image of Christ, the supreme gift of God to humanity.
