Traditions and Festivals Over the last 300 years, German immigrants and their descendants have often celebrated the traditions and holidays of their homelands. Many of their customs and festivals in turn were adopted by other North Americans. One of the most famous and widespread German traditions is decorating an evergreen tree at Christmas, the Christian holiday that celebrates Christ's birth. The tree, which stays green all winter, represents Christ's promise of eternal life to his followers.
