This week Amanda’s challenge is to post red and green photographs, the traditional colours of the festive season. She advises that the origins of the colour scheme arise from Paradise plays performed in the Middle Ages on Christmas Eve. These plays told Bible stories to people who couldn’t read. The ‘Paradise Tree’ in the garden of Eden in the play was normally a pine tree with red apples tied to it.
It’ll have to be photos from my library as I’m now totally out of storage space!
If you’ve enjoyed this post, why not join in the fun?
