Canon Papercraft – Basic Christmas Tree Free Paper Craft
This christmas papercraft is a basic Christmas Tree, designed by Canon Papercraft. The tradition of decorating Christmas trees in a ceremony to protect against evil and to offer up prayers is said to have originated in Germany.
Scholars believe the Christmas tree fuses aspects of Christianity with the German pre-Christian tradition of decorating evergreen conifers – which symbolize vitality – for the winter solstice and the New Year. Topped with a gleaming star heralding Christ’s birth and with branches decorated with gold and silver lacing and cotton snow and lit with candles and light bulbs, Christmas trees add to the romance of Christmas Eve.
