    耶誕樹的由來

    聖誕節是西方最重視的節日。公共場合及私人場所裡的擺設焦點都在那棵從上到下都以五顏六色裝飾的長青樹。雖然現在耶誕樹在全世界都很常見,但長青樹成為冬季裝飾的傳統其實源自德國。

    據說大約在西元一五○○年冬季的某個晚上,新教改革者馬丁路德正走在回家的路上,他瞥見了閃耀的星星高掛在長青樹林上空。覆蓋著白雪的樹枝在月光下閃閃發光。整個景色使他聯想到耶穌出生前夕伯利恆天空的樣子。馬丁路德回家後邊向孩子們敘述聖誕故事邊用蠟燭裝飾一棵樅樹,然後點燃蠟燭,重現他先前看見的冬天景象。

    經過一段時間,裝飾樅樹的傳統在德國變得很流行。十九世紀中葉,英國維多利亞女王的夫婿──在德國出生的艾伯特親王──將這個傳統帶到英國。艾伯特親王和維多利亞女王深受人民愛戴,因此裝飾耶誕樹的傳統很快地傳遍整個大英帝國。

    然而以前在美國大部份的地區慶祝耶誕節是違法的,因為許多耶誕節的傳統起源於異教。等到大批的德國及愛爾蘭移民帶來了他們裝飾耶誕樹的傳統後,情況才漸漸改觀。電燈泡普及後,美國各地的廣場都陳列了巨大的樹木。現今,每年耶誕樹開始閃閃發光時就代表耶誕季節的來臨。

    O’ Christmas Tree

    Christmas is the most cherished holiday in the West. The focal point in both public and private settings is an evergreen tree, decorated from top to bottom in a riot of colors. Though Christmas trees are now commonplace all over the world, the evergreen as a winter decoration originated in Germany.

    As the story goes, on a winter evening around the year 1500, the Protestant reformer Martin Luther was walking home when he caught a glimpse of the twinkling stars above an evergreen forest. The snow-dusted tree branches shimmered in the moonlight. The entire scene made him think about the sky over Bethlehem on the eve of Christ's birth. Luther went home and decorated a fir tree with candles as he told the Christmas story to his children. He then lit the candles to recreate the wintry scene he had witnessed earlier.

    The tradition of decorating fir trees gained popularity in Germany over time. During the mid-19th century, the German-born Prince Albert, husband to Britain's Queen Victoria, brought the tradition to England. Albert and Victoria were popular among the people, and the tradition of decorating trees quickly spread throughout the British Empire.

    In large parts of America, however, it was against the law to celebrate Christmas since many Christmas traditions were pagan in origin. Things slowly

By the time electric lights became commonplace, public squares across America were displaying gigantic trees. Today, the annual lighting of the tree begins the Christmas season.─by Rachel A.
