An endearing holiday symbol with ancient roots.

O Christmas Tree explores the history and traditions--from the tree's origins to the first tree lights and decorations--that led to how people enjoy these trees today. Also includes information about how these special evergreens are grown.

Beautiful illustrations capture the magic and festivity of the holiday season.
