Where the Christmas tree came from (repost)

The Christmas Tree outside the Russia Village Hall (or, it could be Rockerfeller Center in New York; I get them confused all the time).
Here's a talk I gave three years ago to the Kiwanis Club of Piqua that explains at least part of the origins of the Christmas Tree.

Today, I read another story, connecting Saint Boniface.

The stories are not, strictly speaking, mutually exclusive; but as far as which is better attested, I'd say the Christmas-tree element of the Boniface story is less so. Take your pick!
