The Christmas Tree

Christmas is a public holiday in New Zealand, and a Christian celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Christmas is on the 25th of December and Boxing Day follows on the 26th of December in New Zealand. The Christmas tree is traditionally a green pine tree but many New Zealanders now have artificial Christmas trees. We own an artificial Christmas tree that is about 1.5 metres high and 1 metre in width at the bottom front.

The Christmas tree is decorated to look beautiful and be very decorative. On 1 December, people traditionally begin to celebrate Christmas, typically with a decorated Christmas tree. Nowadays, many people have artificial trees, particularly those in cities. This may be because family members are allergic to pine needles. The Christmas tree are the tips of a pine tree. In either countries, Christmas trees may be fir trees or another variety.

People put their Christmas trees up by getting a Christmas tree – either by buying one or getting it out of storage. I bring it out and unpack the sections of the tree and push them together, opening the branches out so that they fill the cone shape space. Having put the Christmas tree on the stand with the branches all extended to fill the space, I began to decorate the tree.

First I put on the two sets of Christmas lights. I have a plug in the corner and placed the Christmas tree on it’s stand and a nearby position. I began to start decorating with the decorations. First the tinsel is spread throughout the tree an adverb zag pattern with each section having some tensile. Next come so beautiful coloured balls they are pet and packets of colour and then silver, red, gold, and ring. And each colour they are shiny balls, not shining balls and textured balls.

The decorations look beautiful and hang from the tips of the branches from where they have been placed. Other decorations are being placed on the tree. These include silver apples, silver gift-wrapped boxes about 2 centimetres in a cube shape. An angel is placed at the top of the Christmas tree and traditionally often a star may also be placed here.

Gifts are placed under the tree as they are purchased, wrapped and stored under the tree ready for Christmas day. Each night the lights are turned on, spreading their light around the room in a magical manner. This is the benefit of having Christmas tree light up a room – bring joy to the family living in its home.

Wishing You A Merry Pagan Winter Solstice

Just for the record, Christmas is Pagan and has nothing to do with Christianity. The Catholics stole it from the Pagans in an effort to bring Pagans to become Christians – but really it just makes Christians Pagans.

Where do you ever find Christmas in the Bible? If anything it says not to do this kind of thing, i.e. idolatry.

This is what the Lord says:

Do not learn the ways of the nations
    or be terrified by signs in the heavens,
    though the nations are terrified by them.
For the practices of the peoples are worthless;
    they cut a tree out of the forest,
    and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
They adorn it with silver and gold;
    they fasten it with hammer and nails
    so it will not totter.

(Jeremiah 10:2-4)
