The Christmas Tree: The Tree of LIFE by Mike Corthell

The Christmas tree lights and ornaments originally symbolized the sun, moon and stars as they looked on the Tree of Life.

The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the *garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. - Genesis2:9

The tree of life and its fruit is understood to be symbolic of Salvation and ever-lasting life in the presence of God and his Love. 

*The planet Earth is the Garden of Eden.
