The Christmas Tree Festival

The use of evergreens to decorate homes during the Christmas season dates back to the beginning of the 19th century.  But these hardy trees were used much earlier by pagan cultures who believed that they represented life and hope; two much needed elements to sustain people through long frigid winter months. Candles were used to light the ends of the tree branches to ward off evil spirits that were at their worst during the coldest days.


  1. Fabulous! I can't imagine we can have these kinds of the Christmas trees. These work are from children and teachers cooperation and their rich imagination. Because we see children as full of potential,competent and capable of building their own theories." The child is made of hundren ways of thinking"

  2. Fabulous! I am very surprised of seeing such creative Christmas tree. They are products from children's imagination. Rich imagination could be worth millions, because children have their potential, competent and capable of making their own theories." The child is made of a hundred ways of thinking" ( Loriz Malaguzzi)

  3. I just love the imagination and creativity the children put into designing these Christmas trees! Just beautiful!
