No other fruit is as closely associated with Christmas as the apple. Of course, this is closely related to the symbolic meaning of the apple from the Christian concept of paradise: the first Christmas trees that hung in churches were trees of paradise. Apples hung from them as “forbidden” fruits. They symbolize what is probably the most well-known biblical myth – of Adam and Eve, the snake and the apple, the fall of man and the expulsion from paradise. Red apples are said to commemorate the blood that Jesus Christ shed on the cross.
