The symbolism of Christmas trees

the Inland Register

(From the Dec. 16, 2004 edition of the Inland Register)

Mrs. Staeheli and preschoolers at Cataldo School, Spokane, prepare for Christmas by making Christmas trees. She explained that the trees represent everlasting life because the needles donít fall off in the winter. This also represents Jesus. (IR photo from Cataldo School)
