According to ancient Babylonian tradition, Semiramis (later known as the goddess Astarte, Asherah, Ashtoreth, Isis, Ishtar, or Easter in other pagan religions) claimed that after the untimely death of her son/husband Nimrod, a full grown evergreen tree sprang up overnight from a dead tree stump. Semiramis claimed that Nimrod would visit that evergreen tree and leave gifts each year on his birhtday, Dec. 25th. Just another pagan tradition being celebrated and Nimrod wants to say thanks to everyone that still puts a tree up to show their love for him.

P.S.-The Holy Bible tells not to cut down trees and decorate them up for that is a custom of vanity..Jeremiah Ch 10.

Jeremiah 10 was referencing a tree that was cut down ("chiseled" and decorated with "gold and silver) and made into an idol for pagans; not a Christmas tree.

Read Jeremiah again; the whole text, and you will see that it was referring to idols.
