Our latest collection of Christmas tree quotes to help you reach great heights of holiday joy.
Christmas trees are a big part of the Christmas holiday.
It is believed that Christmas trees originated in Germany. According to history, the first Christmas tree in America was displayed in the 1830s.
However, because Christmas trees were considered a pagan symbol, many Americans were unwilling to accept the tradition.
It wasn’t until 1846 that Americans started warming up to the Christmas tree tradition after Queen Victoria and her family were seen standing next to a decorated Christmas tree.
By 1830, these trees had gained their true popularity, and they have grown to what we know today.
Today, beyond the birth of Christ, a Christmas tree is a symbol of joy and togetherness for most families.
Also, around the tree is where most of the Christmas celebrations happen.
From singing merry carols and opening gifts to catching up and laughing with family and friends.
