336 - Red & Green

From 365 Project
Every wonder how red and green became the colors of the Christmas Holiday? One explanation dates to the 14th century and the Paradise Tree. Adam & Eve day was celebrated in churches on Christmas Eve and the miracle plays of the time featured an evergreen tree decorated with apples. The tradition eventually became the Christmas Tree. This is a small red wire tree with green bells that is part of our holiday decorations. Canon Rebel XTi, 1/80 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 400, 50mm compact macro and lighting from the micro LED Litepanel.
