What’s with the Christmas Tree?

In the Philippines, most of the malls have started putting up Christmas trees and holiday ornaments in the month of September.

For decades, I still can’t connect what the tree, the ornaments, and the red and green colors got to do with Christmas. I’ve read a lot about the origins of these holiday ornaments but my Christian friends say otherwise.

Nevertheless, I find the “scholarly narratives” on the origins of these ornaments more factual as compared to the “apologetics’ arguments”.

  1. You can believe what John told you. Here in the US, the stores are just about all decked out on the shelves with the traditional stuff for sale. Decorating the actual store comes after that as the Halloween goods go out.
