Christmas is all about homemade cookies and stories told next to the fireplace, surrounded by enchanting decorations. The holiday’s charm stands in the evergreen tree. John Geddes wrote in “A familiar rain” that “Freshly cut Christmas trees smell of stars and snow and pine resin.” Evergreens are pillars of strength, withstanding the harsh conditions of winter. They have been treasured as symbols of life and rebirth for millenniums. Celtics and Romans honored these trees in Winter Solstice celebrations. They considered the evergreens to be promises of new beginnings. The trees were used to decorate the home, as their scent was believed to protect its inhabitants.
