Tradition. The fir tree has a long association with Christianity, it began in Germany almost 1,000 years ago when St. Boniface (the German converter) came across a group of pagans worshipping an oak tree. In anger, St Boniface is said to have cut down the oak tree and to his amazement a young fir tree sprung up from the roots of the oak tree. St Boniface took this as a sign of the Christian faith.
There is also the idea that the tree represents the holy trinity the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. By the 12th century it was being hung, upside-down, from ceilings at Christmastime in Central Europe, as a symbol of Christianity.
