The specific practice of the Christmas tree is often attributed to Germany in the 16th century. Early accounts describe trees being decorated with apples, nuts, and other items during the holiday season.

The tradition of using evergreen trees as part of winter celebrations dates back centuries before the Christian era. Ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians, Romans, and Vikings, used evergreens to symbolize life’s persistence even during the harsh winter months. In medieval Europe, people would bring evergreen branches into their homes as a reminder of the approaching spring.
