In Pictures: Christmas in German families 1945-2015

No matter what Germans may think of the Christian origins of Christmas, they cannot imagine the event without their beloved Christmas tree. But over time, that tree has undergone quite a bit of change.

Christmas – no other event dating back to ancient times continues to evoke as much emotion among Christians as the birth of Jesus, who is regarded as the son of God in the Christian faith. More than 2000 years after his birth, the high holiday of Christmas continues to be a crucial tradition in Christian communities worldwide.

The celebration of Christmas as we know it today has evolved over many centuries to a place whereby it is now inconceivable to celebrate Christmas without featuring its most recognized symbol: the Christmas tree. Historian and archaeologist Peter Knierriem says that it would be “highly unlikely” that people would ever do without the Christmas tree again.
