Bird’s Yule Tree: YULE TRADITIONS AND SYMBOLS

Share: Twitter

The bird’s tree is a sheaf of wheat, branches of milo maize, ears of corn, or some other sort of grain attached to an outdoor pole or fence post.

Traditionally, the tree is set up on Christmas Eve so the birds can enjoy it on Christmas Day.

Though this Scandinavian symbol is primarily associated with Christmas and thought to be Christian, its theme is Pagan in nature.

The main idea is to share with the animal world and make its members a part of the celebration.
