ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Merry Christmas

What did Germans use to make artificial Christmas trees when they were banned from cutting down fir trees in the 19th century?

Goose feathers that were dyed green, wound around small sticks to resemble branches, and then inserted into a bigger stick that served as a tree trunk. They were made as tabletop ornaments after forest preservation laws were passed to stop the decapitation of fir trees.

Congratulations to Jeremy for being the first to get the correct answer!
