Where does the tradition of the Christmas Tree come from anyway?
Every year St. Margaret's Catholic School opens it's annual Christmas Tree Lot. Sure it's a fundraiser - but it's more than that! We love to bring the traditions of Christmas to our community. Maybe you've always wondered how the Christmas Tree came to be a symbol of this sacred holiday? Below are a couple of short videos to learn about the history and tradition of the Christmas Tree.
Knowing it's roots (pun totally intended!) how can you go without? Come see us at St. Margaret's Catholic School Tree Lot!
