For the alphabet Challenge

 I combined the letters O and T.

For O I used Old Olive and printed out the music to O Christmas Tree. 
For the letter T I used Perfect Pine TREE, Dani double challenged us to do something time related so I put a print inside the story or meaning of the Christmas Tree and how they ended up coming indoors for Christmas
.






O CHRISTMAS TREE!
Perhaps the most beloved of all Christmas traditions is the custom of the Christmas tree.  
Christmas trees have been a part of celebrations worldwide for thousands of years. 
Ancient Romans viewed the trees as a sign of life in the midst of Winter.  In Great Britain in 
Victorian times, trees were decorated with candles to represent stars.  In Germany, the first 
Christmas Trees were decorated with edible things, such as gingerbread and gold covered 
apples. 
The first person to bring a Christmas Tree into a house, in the way we know it today, may have
 been the 16th century German preacher Martin Luther. A story is told that, one night before 
Christmas, he was walking through the forest and looked up to see the stars shining through 
the tree branches. It was so beautiful!  He went home and told his children that it reminded 
him of Jesus, who left the stars of heaven to come to earth at Christmas.
One thing is for certain.  Whether big or small, wide or tall, Christmas trees bring the magic
 of Christmas into our hearts and our homes.
