Beskrivelse

En klog mand, Charles Kirchof fra Tyskland, opfandt en lyseholder, hvor der var en stang, der holdt en kontravægt på grenen. Den eneste ulempe ved dette var, at grenen bøjede nedad. Denne opdagelse blev hurtigt bragt til Danmark, og i 1880erne sås de på de første juletræer.
Nogle måtte dog nøjes med en gren i en urtepotte eller en grønkålsplante med lys. Det var billigere end et rigtigt juletræ af gran.
Traditionen med jul og lys går helt tilbage til de gamle Nordboere, som fejrede julen som lysets fest, længe før kristendommen kom ind i billedet. De kaldte det jól og fejrede at lyset begyndte at vende tilbage. Senere blev den nordiske julefest smeltet sammen med Jesus fødselsdag, men julen er stadig en lysfest.

The story in English

In the old days amongst the farmers it used to be a custom to light a candle when a child was born. The reason was that the people believed that the magic power of the light and the fire would keep away bad spirits and deter demons.

The idea that a child’s life-line depended on the way the candle burned down and the quality of the candle, was connected with christening and marriage.

Those candles which were lighted for the child or the newly-married couple should therefore burn out completely or be put out following certain traditions, a custom which is still used today with the candles on a birthday cake.
