O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

Have you ever wondered what the significance of a Christmas tree is? For thousands of years the Christmas tree has been used for winter festivities for the pagan and Christian holidays. The Christmas tree’s actual name is the evergreen fir tree. Pagans would use the branches to decorate their houses during the winter months while Christians used it as a sign of everlasting life with God.


Many people chose either a star or an angle to put on the top of their Christmas tree. With that being said, there are many unique different toppers you can put on your tree as well:

My family and I love to walk around neighborhoods and check out the best Christmas decorations all December long. Each year we have a Christmas party a few days before the 25th were we invite all our friends. This year, we sent our invitations via Penless. We decided to make a short video welcoming them to our annual ugly sweater party. This was a unique and personal touch to our invitations this year. We used the Christmas 4UP sticker pack that we got off the Penless Website.


Enjoy the holiday!
