Decorating the Christmas tree
has become a regular event of the
Christmas season, but few people
know how the custom originated.
Martin Luther, the German re-
formation leader is credited with
lighting the first Christmas tree.
The story is told that Luther
was walking through the country-
side late one Christmas Eve un-
der a brilliant starlit sky and Ids
thoughts turned to the Nativity cf
Luther was a ved by the beauty
of the heavens and the winter
landscape. The blue light on the
hills and on the evergreens ana
the snowflakes sparkling in the
moonlight were truly inspiration-
Rushing home Luther called his
family about him ancl told of the
beauty he had witnessed.
In an attempt to desciibc more
fully what he had seen, he at-
tached some lighted candles to a
small evergreen tree to portray the
light of the starry heavens.
Thus, according to Oklahoma A.
and M College library sources,
Martin Luther put the first lights
on a Christmas tree.

Durrell, Oklahoma A. and M.
They appeal especially to chil-
dren and, because they are nlive,
keep the fire hazard to a mini-
mum. The planting of the live
Christmas tree near the home
on New Year's Day serves as a
fitting ceremony to end the holi-
