A Christmas tree is an evergreen tree adorned with ornaments and lights during the Christmas season.
The first mention of a Christmas tree was in 1605 at Strasbourg in Germany. It was later introduced into France, and then to England.
The first decorated tree was at Riga in Latvia, in 1510. In the early 16th century, Martin Luther (1483-1546) is said to have decorated a small Christmas Tree with candles, to show his children how the stars twinkled through the dark night.
