This is not just ANY TREE! At this time of the year, people celebrate many different holidays but this is NOT a "Holiday" Tree. This is a CHRISTMAS tree. It is not a Hanukkah bush, it is not an Allah plant, it is not a Holiday hedge. It is a Christmas tree. Say it... CHRISTmas, CHRISTmas, CHRISTmas Yes. CHRISTmas - celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!Take a stand and pass it on!!! The Christmas tree is not a pagan symbol. It is evergreen to represent the everlasting gift given to us by God through the birth of Christ. It is triangular to represent the the Trinity, the three in one Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The sparkling lights represent Jesus, the light of the world and also recall the Christmas star that guided the wisemen on their journey to seek the Holy Child. The gifts we give to one another represent the recognition of the fact that Christ is God's gift to us. The plentiful food we share represents the riches that are ours because of that gift.
