How about the profit Jeremiah giving a perspective to a pagan practice
“Jer 10:3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
Jer 10:4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
Jer 10:5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. “
In history this practice was a form of false worship, according to God, through Jeremiah.
And if this is actually taken as though it were a citation today against the practice of Christmas trees, it is a tired old canard based on the fallacy that some superficial degree of similarity constitutes identity. Has any even quasi-orthodox Christian you know of ever worshiped a Christmas tree? I didn’t think so. This is not the practice by which pagans actually thought the trees were gods. Although I’d wonder about cutting down trees if I did believe that, as these gods would get rather peeved at such an action if they did exist as claimed.
It's the "prophet" Jeremiah
But rest is correct about the Bible on "Christmas" Trees
