Christmas tree is necessary for Christmas and New Year holidays! But do you know why people decorate the Christmas tree, what is the origin of this tradition?

Many nations had this tradition to decorate fir trees at the end of December: the Celts believed that the fir is inhabited by the forest spirits and decorated the highest tree in the area, Christians have a legend, related to the birth of Jesus.
Personally, I do not like that so many young firs and pines are cut down in December, because they can grow big and majestic and live a long life, the birds will sit on their branches, and the squirrels will collect cones. At home, you can decorate your Christmas tree or make home-made Christmas tree, and just cut and bring home some living branches from the forest for the smell.
