National Take Down the Christmas Tree Day

National Take Down the Christmas Tree Day

Many people are familiar with the Twelve Days of Christmas. However, many don’t realize that these aren’t the days leading up, but the twelve days after Christmas. The Twelve Days of Christmas song is only a small part of the holiday celebrations. In fact, the Twelve Days of Christmas was originally created in Germany in 16th-century when Christians brought evergreens into their homes and decorated them using ribbons and candles. The idea of Christmas trees was introduced to America in the early 19th-century, possibly by German settlers in Pennsylvania. Its origins date back to the 6th Century, when the church declared a “sacred, festive season” that runs from Christmas Day through Epiphany. This day, also known as Three Kings Day, is one of the oldest Christian festival days. It is often thought to mark the end of Christmas’ holiday season. The inspiration for the poem and song is a late eighteen century tradition. Although this English Christmas carol can be set to many tunes, the most well-known and popular was Frederic Austin’s 1909 arrangement of a folk medley. Others choose to keep it up until December 26th. Some people may choose to keep their Christmas tree up until the New Year, while others will enjoy the festivities and celebrations of National Take Down the Christmas Tree Day.
