Christmas Tree History
The great reformer Martin Luther is often credited with
reintroducing evergreen boughs to midwinter celebrations in Germany, although there are few historical records of Christmas trees as we know them before 1600. Christmas boughs and trees soon spread over Germany. In subsequent centuries, as Germans emigrated by the hundreds of thousands to the New World. they brought their tradition of Christmas greenery with them.
