The Christmas Tree Facts & History

No doubt you’ve seen the activities staff hard at work putting Christmas trees up last week. Here are some fun facts about them!

-Christmas Trees are grown in all 50 states including Hawaii.

-In medieval times in Poland, Christmas Trees were hung from the ceiling, as the inverted triangle represented The Holy Trinity.

-Americans buy about 30 million Christmas Trees each year.

-New England Puritans banned Christmas Trees in 1659, calling it a “heathen tradition”.

Weekly Inspiration

“Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.”

~ Eric Sevareid ~

Prayer Request & Scripture


John 7:16-17

“So Jesus answered them, “My teaching is not mine, but God’s, Him who sent me. If any person would truly desire to do His Will, he or she will come to realize whether my teaching is from God or if I am declaring things made up on my own.”

THIS WEEK PRAY FOR: All Residents & Staff
