Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Red and Green

Origins of the Traditional Christmas Colours of Red and Green

In many parts of Europe during the middle ages, Paradise plays were performed, often on Christmas Eve. They told Bible stories to people who couldn’t read. The ‘Paradise Tree’ in the garden of eden in the play was normally a pine tree with red apples tied to it.

    1. I can’t wait to see your Christmas tree, Tanja. I moved last year and just discovered the Xmas tree got chucked in the de-cluttering madness. I will have to go buy another this year. I will check out your post on your post shortly.


  1. Not sure yet whether I’ll be able to contribute this week so I’ll take the time now to wish you a merry Christmas too! And I’m intrigued what this ‘new format’ will prove to be …?? 😀

    1. It was hard to think of a different Christmas theme, Cee so I stuck to two colours. Still Christmasy but something a little different I hope. I appreciate you joining in.
