Are Christmas Trees Pagan? (Shocking Truth!)

In this video

If Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus, why does everyone put up a Christmas Tree?

Christmas Trees’ Nordic Pagan Origins
Episode 345 12162019

Today on Crack Your Bible Bible study, we’re discussing the pagan origins of the centerpiece of everyone’s Christmas celebration – the Christmas tree. It’s not Christmas without a tree and yet we don’t find anything associated with traditional Christmas celebrations in Scripture – but we do find them EVERYWHERE in Germanic, Norse and Scandinavian paganism!

This episode’s discussion on Odin is based off of the translations of the Eddas by Dr. Jackson Crawford of the University of Colorado, who happened to be a language consultant for Disney’s Frozen.
