The First Small Christmas Tree

Ever wonder who put up and decorated the first small Christmas tree? According to historical records, Martin Luther, the famed German monk who is credited with finding Protestantism, is said to have put up and decorated a small Christmas tree in the early 1500s.

Luther evidently decorated the small tree with candles. His sole purpose was to demonstrate to his kids how stars twinkle when it is dark outside. So, the next time someone wonders where the idea of decorating a small Christmas tree came from, you can share that it has been around for hundreds of years and it isn't such a new concept after all.
