So what does the Christmas tree symbolize? Well I thought to make this a readable post I should include some theology and insight on the Christmas tree. A long story short..It has something to do with Martin Luther..maybe..couldn't quite figure it out. There is also some symbolism...which may or may not be true. But I thought I'd list them here just for fun.

-The color red: symbolizes the Savior's sacrifice
-The Fir tree:
- Evergreen-shows everlasting light and life.
- The needles point up toward heaven.
- Triangular shape represents the trinity
-The star on top of the tree: The star of Bethlehem.
*But we have a bow so I'll say the bow represents that Christ is the ultimate gift.
-The lights: heaven (I guess it's good we have a whole lot of them:)
-The gifts: charity, love, celebrating Christ's love and ultimate gift
*Please note, these symbolisms have been taken from websites that are not reliable. I have also modified them to my liking. If anyone has any symbolism that you would like to share with me I would love that! Also if you actually want to read a good post on the meaning of the Christmas tree visit this site.
