Day 23 of my 25 Days of Christmas is Learn About the Tradition of the Christmas Tree. This is such a fun little research project to do as a family. Growing up we really did not talk about why we had a Christmas “tree”. Everyone had one and so did we. If you search on Wikipedia “Christmas Tree” it has a lot of interesting information about how the Christmas tree came to be what is it today. If you scroll down to the References you can check out some interesting books. Had I had more time this year I would have gone to the library and checked out some books on the history of Christmas trees and read through them. Maybe next year… When Charlotte gets older this will be a fun activity that can include some art projects but for now reading about its history is just fine.
