Christmas trees

“2 Thus says Jehovah, Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at or have no fear of the signs of heaven; for the nations are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the peoples are vanity; for one cut a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman with the axe. 4 They deck it or make it beautiful with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5 They are like a palm–tree or pillar in a garden of plants, of turned work, and speak not: they must be carried, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good. 6 There is none like You, O Jehovah; you are great, and Your name is great in might.” (Jeremia 10:2-6)
