Nimrod Part 9: The real meaning of Ash Wednesday and Lent

The origin of the Christmas tree. My conclusion is to teach that the Christmas tree is a reminder of the tree on which Christ Jesus died. We put lights on it to remind us that we are the light of the world. It points upward to remind us from whence comes our help. We lay gifts under it to remind us of God's gift of his Son.
