This wiki entry is just wrong!
Yes, there was this Bonifaz-Taliban and yes he cut down a Thor-Oak....but the germanic pagan ritual to cut a branch of an evergreen and take it home for the winter solstice season stayed...till some smartie muuuuuuuuuuuuuch later came up with the idea to make the branch bigger...get some more additionally...hey, why not a whole tree and voila, the christmas tree was born.(Especially funny as the this was another try by the christian taliban to overtake the pagan traditions of winter solstice (22th) and call that "Christmas" even as we know that Jesus was NOT born on the 24th of December)
To put it simply, going back to your roots = fascism.
The Christians will do everything to smear the much older native customs...they always did.
If their opinion matters to you in any way - stupid!
They are losing their grip, the old gods are reawakening! :)
