For you Christians who think that Christmas Trees are pagan? Think again… Here’s what they really represent:

The Christmas tree is an evergreen that reminds us that we have “eternal life” in Jesus Christ (John 6:40)

The shape of trees reminds us that we are “born from above” (John 3:3)

The needles on the branches remind us that Jesus was “pierced through for our transgressions” (Isaiah 53:5)

The lights hung on trees remind us that Jesus is “the light of the world” (John 8:12) and through Him we are to be “the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14)

The evergreen foliage of trees symbolizes everlasting life

Tree Toppers – Typically these include an angel or a star which symbolizes the Christian origins of Christmas 

Green colors symbolize nature, fertility, hope and bountifulness and also symbolize freedom from bondage

Five pointed stars symbolize the Nativity, and the number of Grace (5)

Angels brought the news of the birth of Jesus Christ and symbolize the Nativity

Bell decorations symbolize the bells that are rung during the festive season in the early days to announce and celebrate the birth of Jesus

Now put up a tree and celebrate JESUS! ….MERRY CHRISTMAS!
