Fun Fact: O Tannenbaum Etymology

The song O’ Christmas Tree is based on the original German song O Tannenbaum. Germany decorated trees before Christanity came to the region, and Tannenbaum does not literally mean “Christmas tree’. It literally translates as “fir tree” as many Christmas trees are fir trees.
