With all this talk about Christmas in Meade County we thought it fit to talk about the authentic Christmas tree. Here’s some things about the Christmas tree you might not have known, we certainly did not know either!
What is the real name of The Christmas tree?
Traditional Norway Spruce (Picea Abies)
Norway Spruce is the traditional Christmas tree which has been popular since Victoria times with short and thin, varying bright and deep green pointed needles.
We wanted to look up the symbolic meaning to find out just why the Christmas tree was so important, and why everyone would put this kind of tree inside their home and hang ornaments from them, and put presents underneath of them.
after doing some research we found out that, In Christianity, Christmas tree is symbolic of birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The tree’s branches and shrubs are viewed as an emblem of immortality and are said to symbolize the crown of thorns worn by Christ on the cross. While researching this topic we came across something quite interesting called an advent calendar. Have you or your loved one ever share the experience of opening an advent calendar together? We would like to let you know that it is a very humbling and bringing together feeling. We hope that you might find some kind of way to bring your family/ friends closer to the Christmas and holiday Vibe together so we thought we might mention this about the advent calendar for you and your family.
An Advent calendar helps countdown the days until Christmas, usually with a small item or devotional phrase that is revealed on each day. Traditional calendars are rectangular cards or boxes you can hang on the wall or sit on a table with small sealed doors or windows meant to be opened in order on each day of Advent.
Advent Calendar Fillers for Kids and Adults
Like many holiday Fun, Advent calendars are often most beloved by children. But, you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy a good Advent calendar—especially when you get creative with the daily surprise.

- Wine tastings
- Handwritten notes
- Gourmet food samples
- Experiences or activities
