We also have an oak - a sacred tree - the Perun tree. In the same way, among the ancient Germanic peoples, it was the Tree of Thor. And therefore, we have such assimilation - a Christmas tree appears from different layers of culture. According to legend, the Christmas tree as a symbol of Christmas appears allegedly in the 7th century, when Saint Boniface, in Germany, cut down an ancient tree of the pagans - the Tree of Thor, that oak rolled down and felled all the trees, and only the Christmas tree was not felled. And then Boniface said that the fir tree is a symbol of God, it has a triangular shape, and he tied it to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Одно из поверий приводит нас к культу предков, что рельефно выступает в рождественской обрядности. В "святой вечер" (накануне Рождества) вечерний ужин, состоящий в Лубенском у., главным образом, из угла и компота (отвар сушеных плодов), имеет семейный и, в частности, поминальный характер: кутью оставляют на ночь для умерших родственников; по народному верованию, на стене бывают видны неясные отражения маленьких, как куклы, спускающихся к столу людей.



Currently, winter in Ukraine is primarily associated with carols, which are sung on the holiday of Christmas (January 6-8 according to the new style). But carols were once pagan songs, against which the Orthodox Church initially waged an unsuccessful struggle and banned them. However, Kolyada rites proved to be very stable in Ukraine, marked in many ways by the features of pagan beliefs, reminiscent of both honoring the newborn sun and the cult of ancestors.
