Top 100 Christmas tree coloring pages: The ultimate (free!) printable collection

In this country, trees were first trimmed in the “German fashion.” Bacon and hams were added — or if the tree could not support the weight of these real items, pictures of the foods were attached to the branches.

Today, most of the food and candles have given way to electric lights, brightly-colored balls, artificial snow, tinsel, birds, miniature sleds and reindeer.

The tree most closely associated with Christmas is the fir — possibly because the balsam fir twigs, more than any other evergreen, resemble crosses.┬áBut there are actually more than 20 commonly accepted varieties of Christmas trees — including the Ponderosa Pine, the Jack Pine, Lodgepole Pine, Norway Spruce and the Grand Fir.

Even with plenty of trees for everyone, some would ban the Christmas tree because they consider it wasteful. Theodore Roosevelt forbade the use of Christmas trees in the White House, feeling their use was an environmental extravagance.

But one year, when Roosevelt’s sons smuggled a tree into the White House, Gifford Pinchot, Chief of the Forest Division, assured the President that proper harvesting of trees was actually good for the forests, and the Christmas tree returned to the White House.
