Look for an Evergreen Day

Look for an Evergreen Day is celebrated on December 19th of each year. The staff at National Whatever Day were unable to discover the origins of Look for an Evergreen Day, however we believe it was establish as a way to honor the tradition of locating the perfect Christmas Tree.

The Christmas tree is a decorated evergreen coniferous tree, real or artificial, and a tradition associated with the celebration of Christmas. The Christmas tree is often brought into a home, but can also be used in the open, and can be decorated with Christmas lights (originally candles), ornaments, garlands and tinsel during the days around Christmas. An angel or star is often placed at the top of the tree, representing the host of angels or the Star of Bethlehem from the Nativity. The tradition of decorating an evergreen tree at Christmas started in Germany in the 16th century.
