Christmas Trees

Green trees were cut down, mounted, and then decked with offerings of food and precious gifts to Mithra.


“The Christmas tree is from Egypt, and it originally dates from a period long anterior to the Christian Era.”— Frederick J. Haskins, Answers to Questions.


Evergreens, because of their ability to remain fresh and green throughout the year, symbolized immortality and fertility. Egyptian priests taught that the evergreen tree sprang from the grave of their god Osiris, who, after being murdered by another god, was resurrected through the energy in an evergreen tree.

They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.”—Jeremiah 10:2-4.
