Okey, listen, I'd like to introduce the following to you... How long have you been singing "O Pine tree, O Pine tree how beautiful your branches are" during the holidays.
To get you in the Christmas spirit, I have a spotify link to the song. Now I've gone to find out how that works. Because if you are at the Christmas tree sale, there are always Northmen and blue spruce for sale. These are spruces, not pine trees.
The scientific name for Den or pinePinus and for the Spruce is that (Picea) and of theSilver Fir that is (Abies). The name Den has popularly become a collective name for the various species from the pine family(Pinaceae). The spruce trees can be distinguished from the pines (Pinus) because the needles in spruce are single. In pines, the needles are two or sometimes more together. The needles of the pine are round and those of the spruce are flat. The wood extracted from norway spruce is spruce . The wood that is made is called pine. The name of the wood of the silver fir is called pine. If we want to sing it correctly, it should sound like " O fir, O fir singing, or " O blue-e-fir, O blue-e-fir ". But of course we don't traditionally do that.
Good question, why you decorate a tree at Christmas. The answer is soon quite simple – it's a tradition. The worship of Pine trees predates Christianity. It was already a custom of the Gentiles. They took a tree out of the forest and put it in the middle of the Market Square. She also decorated this tree. The pine tree symbolizes love, wealth, birth health, fertility, etc.
Some scholars have researched that the first Christmas tree was probably a spruce tree, intended to defuse evil and symbolize life (Gwendolyn 2018). The "evergreen" nature of pines, which allows them to maintain their green foliage during winter or dry seasons, also represents the triumph of life above darkness.
Does the Christmas tree tradition only exist in Christianity?
The pine tree tradition is widespread. The traditions of Japan, China and Korea share a veneration of the pine tree as a source of longevity. The Shinto faith also has the pine tradition.
" During New Year, pine twigs on bamboo trunks are attached to doors."
This creates a gate (Kadomatsu) for the gods to bless the earthly inhabitants. In the photo you can see an example of this. In the photo you can see an example of this. It looks like a kind of Christmas piece.
From the perspective of the Tree Wisdom you can learn the following from the Christmas tree. From its high position above the tops of most other trees, the pine tree reminded the peoples of antiquity of the importance of taking the overview and encouraging objectivity and foresight.
We are advised to purge ourselves of negativity, not to dwell on mistakes and not to point out blame. The pine is a symbol of the spirit and the birth of spirituality.
