The History of Christmas Trees

Christmas trees have come a long way as time passed by. 

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

Martin Luther is said to have decorated his Christmas tree with candles to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Prince Albert, several centuries later, set up the first Christmas tree in Windsor Castle.

Who would have thought that this tree would be one of the symbols of Christmas and be an immense global success? Certainly not the people mentioned above.

Now, fir trees are grown in Denmark especially for the export market, and others are shipped by helicopter in Oregon. Factories in China produce plastic replicas of these trees.
