Beautiful Vintage Christmas Sugar Apple, these magical little amulets are covered in a fine glass bead much like my sugar candles. Let Eve’s vintage apple open your eyes and aid you in gaining knowledge. Though the forbidden fruit in the Book of Genesis is not identified, popular Christian tradition holds that Adam and Eve ate an apple from the forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden thus gaining knowledge. The apple represents knowledge and the ability to reason. What all this really means, is that “God”, an evil tyrant entity/deity NOT the Real God above All, wanted mankind to stay ignorant in the lowest part of the Tree of Life, only being present here in the physical world, and not gain the experience and understanding of all aspects above which would make mankind free.
“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.” (Genesis 3:6) She was deceived and went by her senses. She saw with her eyes, and what she saw looked pleasant and desirable, so she took of the fruit and ate.”
In Medieval Germany, December 24th saw the celebration of another festival alongside Christmas. It was called “Adam and Eve Day,” and it commemorated the story of the fall of man. Some churches hailed the Garden of Eden duo as saints. Pairing up their story with Christmas created a theme of hopeful redemption through the birth of a savior.
Germans decorated evergreen trees with apples, which were referred to as paradise trees. Paradise trees represented the tree of forbidden fruit in the Bible. Later trees were decorated with wafers, candles, and pastries in the shapes of angels, flowers, hearts, and stars. These traditions spread throughout Europe and Germany. It’s been said that Martin Luther, a 16th century German religious reformer, was the first person to put candles on a Christmas tree. He was inspired to do it after seeing stars twinkling through evergreen trees. Later decorations included paper streamers and berries.
These were procured from an estate sale and sadly somone cut off all their little strings that you would hang them with so I have put them on sale. They are still beautiful and I personally just shove them into my tree when I decorate. 🙂
