Program Description   Many of our traditions in America originated in other countries and were brought by those who immigrated here. Can you imagine hanging your Christmas tree from the ceiling? Why do we even have Christmas trees in our homes at this time of year? In this program, we’ll follow the story of the Triangular Tree from the forests of Germany to the modern homes of America. Participants discover that not all folks were happy to celebrate the holiday season using this tradition and the very first tree in America was not a tree at all!
