Interesting Christmas Tree Facts for Kids

Before we get started with our fun Christmas tree craft projects for kids, let’s find out what these trees are all about first.

What is a Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree is a tradition associated with Christmas.

Normally it is a pine tree cut in the wild and brought home to decorate with Christmas lights and ornaments for Christmas.

On Christmas Eve or day, the gifts will be placed under the Christmas tree.

After the holy three kings arrived the tree took off again to mark the end of the Christmas celebration.

Origin of the Modern Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree we know now being decorated with lights originated during the Renaissance in early modern Germany (16th century).

It is sometimes associated with Protestant Christian reformer Martin Luther, who is said to have first added lighted candles to an evergreen tree.

The earliest known firmly dated is on the keystone sculpture of a private home in Turckheim, Alsace (then part of Germany, today France), with the date 1576.
