Question by : Where does the tradition of the Christmas tree come from? ?
I’ve alway wondered the history and tradition of having a tree in your house with lights and decorations. Does anyone know the origins of the Christmas tree.

Origins of the Christmas Tree:
Pagan traditions: Many Pagan cultures used to cut boughs of evergreen trees in December, move them into the home or temple, and decorate them. 7 Modern-day Pagans still do. This was to recognize the winter solstice — the time of the year that had the shortest daylight hours, and longest night of the year. This occurs annually sometime between DEC-20 to 23: most often DEC-21. They noticed that the days were gradually getting shorter; many feared that the sun would eventually disappear forever, and everyone would freeze. But, even though deciduous trees, bushes, and crops died or hibernated for the winter, the evergreen trees remained green. They seemed to have magical powers that enabled them to withstand the rigors of winter.

Not having evergreen trees, the ancient Egyptians considered the palm tree to symbolize resurrection. They decorated their homes with its branches during the winter solstice. 3

“The first decorating of an evergreen tree began with the heathen Greeks and their worship of their god Adonia, who allegedly was brought back to life by the serpent Aessulapius after having been slain.” 5

The ancient Pagan Romans decorated their “trees with bits of metal and replicas of their god, Bacchus [a fertility god]. They also placed 12 candles on the tree in honor of their sun god” 2 Their mid-winter festival of Saturnalia started on DEC-17 and often lasted until a few days after the Solstice.

In Northern Europe, the ancient Germanic people tied fruit and attached candles to evergreen tree branches, in honor of their god Woden. Trees were viewed as symbolizing eternal life. This is the deity after which Wednesday was named. The trees joined holly, mistletoe, the wassail bowl and the Yule log as symbols of the season. All predated Christianity. 5

All of this information can be found in the Encyclopedia. Why take someones opinion when there are facts, and proof. Just takes a little research.

I came up with this site by just going to google and typeing in the origin of the christmas tree.
People with an open mind will look into all view points. Scholars view points, religious view points. And decide for yourself.
Good for you to be interested enough to look into it and ask questions instead of blindly following others.

Question by Joe: If nothing happens after we die, how did we ever come to consciousness in the first place?
Think about this very carefully before you answer, if there is absolutely nothing after this, then why is there anything in the first place? – Better yet, why would consciousness be a one time phenomenon for the experiencer?

Best answer:

Answer by Amber-Lynn
I LOVE YOU! I think about stuff like this so often! What happens after you die, is our whole world just an illusion, what were we before we had life? Is there an afterlife, are previous lives logical, do souls exist infinitly??
