Advent Activities - Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree

I know this came a little bit late but I was feeling under the weather since Christmas eve, this post was sitting in my draft since then but only feeling better today to finish it up.

With a few years of a small table top Christmas tree, a few years with no Christmas tree and with our very special Christmas tree for the pass 2 years as photos below...

We have a REAL Christmas Tree! Ok not REAL as in one with fir tree with roots and needs watering, but a real standing-on-the-floor Christmas tree~  What's more exciting is that the tree is decorated with 90% of ornaments made by us and it is filled with many Christmas pressie for us!

Do you know that evergreen trees, such as cherry and hawthorns were used as Christmas trees in the past but the most commonly used is the Fir tree.  The triangular shape of the fir tree was suggestive of the Christian Trinity and the evergreen trees were used to symbolize the "Tree of Life."

This activity is part of an Advent Activities series where we aim to share on a daily basis the various activities we are doing as we lead into Christmas!
