“O Tannenbaum” was originally a traditional German folk song, which turned into a Christmas Carol in the early 20th century, as the Christmas tree turned to be one of the main decorative objects of the season. The modern lyrics were written in 1824 by Ernst Anschütz who was a Leipzig organist, teacher and composer.
The lyrics refer to the Tannenbaum, a fir tree, that is admired as a symbol of faithfulness and constancy. When it was translated into English, the symbolism was shifted towards the tree as a Christmas holiday feature.
