🎄 This is a Christmas Tree 🎄
The custom of decorated trees originated among Pagans, but was appropriated as a Christian symbol. In fact, the decorated Christmas tree only caught on in the mid-19th century as it was viewed by the church as a “heathen tradition”. Perhaps this shifting of traditions is worth considering next time you are tempted to post a Merry Christmas vs Season’s Greetings meme to Facebook?
