Interesting stuff - particularly as to involve the yew tree in Christmas
would have been totally contrary to English Folk beliefs. But then, by the
time the practice had spread beyond the aristocracy - it wasn't a yew tree
anymore - it was a Christmas Tree as we know it.

And Christmas trees hadn't been invented anyway....? I think, what do I
know.

PS. As part of my bit for the environment I shall be doing the local
Scouts'
Christmas tree chipping again this (next) year. I consider this to be sort
of public service and partly environmental in keeping dumped trees out of
the local woods. I note someone is proposing something similar in the Arb
magazine....
