The Christmas tree is a traditional decoration used for generations in the celebration of Christmas - a Christian Religion Holy time.

There can be strong connections between Christianity and the Christmas tree. To such an extent that it makes the tree as a Christian decoration symbol that is glorifying God, and the display of it becomes even more joyous...

Speaking about Jesus Christ: "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." (1 Peter 2:24 KJV).

Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God redeemed Christians and gave them the ultimate gift; the gift of salvation through his death on the cross (punishment for the sins of each individual follower of his). The cross which is also repeatedly called a "tree" in the Bible scriptures.

Though the actual cross of Jesus Christ was awful (and what he went through on it was beyond torment), what it means to Christians - what it means to the saved - is the end of sin, and the creation of forgiveness. He then brought himself back to life with his own power (the only one ever to do this, proving his power over death, and proving his statement that his followers will "never die"). This is a wonderful, joyous gift from God which Christians want to celebrate on Christmas (as well as on Easter).

Thus, in celebration of the Birth of Jesus (Christmas), we have:
+ A tree (remembrance of what Jesus did on the cross which is called a tree).
+ Lights and ornaments (representational of the glory, and wonder of what Jesus did on the cross). - In the days of old, Christians used candles (unsafe) on the tree, which was a connection also to the Church.
+ A star at the top, representing the star that was above Jesus Christ at his birth time.
+ Or perhaps an angel on top, representing the angel that told the shepherds of the birth of the King.
+ Often a nativity scene, which is a model that depicts the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas time.
+ And the gifts? Gift giving is a serious part of the tradition of Christmas, started by God himself: God gave us the gift of Jesus on his birth (Christmas). The wise men gave Jesus gifts when they arrived at the nativity. Jesus gave us the gift of salvation on the tree, as well as countless other gifts. We give our hearts, minds and souls to Jesus Christ.

And we give gifts to each other (love = best gift), because giving and sharing to make others happy and comforted is such a very strong part of Christianity. The gift giving of Christmas is often the fulfillment of Jesus' words in Luke 6:38: "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.." (Luke 6:38 KJV).

Christmas if full of gift giving, so give yourself a gift: and allow yourself to enjoy this Christian Holy Time to it's fullest.

Merry Christmas!
