    It only takes Santa’s elves a month or so to make all the toys. The rest of the year they go from attic to attic and closet to closet, tangling up the strings if lights.

    Truth is, the so-called xmas tree is a misnomer; the tradition began with Northern Germanic Druids burning a log to symbolise the coming of the Winter solstice (sometimes called a “yule log” < Now made as a chocolate cake), later, some tribes began to burn the entire tree; eventually, burning trees were replaced by trees with candles on them, and from which hung gifts such as apples and oranges.It was this tree that came over from Germany, to the English speaking World, with Prince Albert, when he married Queen Victoria, and it became the new “xmas” tradition. Today, of course, the candles have been replaced with lights and the oranges with large coloured balls, but, it all began with a “pagan” ceremony by ancient German Druids. (So, the next time someone complains about the “PC crowd” calling the “burning” tree in your living room a “Holiday tree” , laugh and say, yes, it is!)

    Truth is…….there is an even earlier description:
    .
    3 "For the customs of the peoples are futile;
    For one cuts a tree from the forest,
    The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.
    4 They decorate it with silver and gold;
    They fasten it with nails and hammers
    So that it will not topple.
    5 They are upright, like a palm tree,
    And they cannot speak;
    They must be carried,
    Because they cannot go by themselves.
    Do not be afraid of them,
    For they cannot do evil,
    Nor can they do any good.”
    .
    Jeremiah 10: 3-5

    Frankly I’m glad that the tradition changed from burning a yule log to eating a chocolate yule log.
