The Christmas tree tradition started with a young man named William Bosfowitz. A few days before Christmas he and his friends were talking about what their families were going to do for the Christmas celebration. His friend Edward Taute said that he and his family were going to do something that no family had ever done. They were going to half of their presents in socks. That is where we got the tradition of the stocking. All the other boys got rather jealous so William made up a lie to make his new tradition sound much cooler, so he said, "My family is putting up a really big tree in our front cabinet room and we are going to decorate it! My mom says that it is called an evergreen coniferous. That is a much better tradition than stuffing stuff in socks!" And so, as you see the tradition of the Christmas tree started with a bit of jealousy.
