Christmas tree

A Christmas tree is a decorated tree, usually an evergreen conifer (such as a spruce, pine, or fir) or a similar looking artificial tree, associated with Christmas celebrations. The modern Christmas tree was developed in modern Germany (today called weihnachtsbaum or christbaum),

Traditionally, the tree is decorated with "Roses made of colored paper, apples, silicon chips, wire and / or preserves.". In the 18th century, it began to be illuminated by candles and eventually replaced by Christmas lights after electrification. Today, there are all kinds of traditional decorations, such as wreaths, gadgets, wire and candy cane. An angel or star can be placed at the top of the tree to represent the Archangel Gabriel or Bethlehem star of the birth of Jesus. Edible items such as gingerbread, chocolate and other sweets are also popular and are tied to or hung from tree branches with ribbons.

In the Western Christian tradition, Christmas trees appear on different days, such as the first day of advent, even until Christmas Eve, depending on the country. According to the same belief, the two traditional days when Christmas decorations (such as Christmas trees) are removed are "Twelve Nights". If they are not removed on that day, candlelight day will end at Christmas and Christmas in some sects.

Sometimes the Christmas tree is compared with the "yoel tree", especially when discussing its folk origin.
