I read something about christmas tradition could be about winter solist in Northern Europe; During long cold winter children couldn’t go out and play so Dad went out and cut the tree brought in the house and decolated it with stored apples and popped corns
and it made kids happy.
I don’t know the official story but I like this one the most.
