German Christmas Traditions - were very much rooted in traditional Christian beliefs. The older Christmas decorations almost always show Christ or Angels; only in the last two centuries have we seen the rise of the Santa and Snowmen traditions in the German seasonal decor. Older pyramids also show miners and celebrate the heritage and economic rise which came from the discovery and the harvesting of mineral enriched mountains. The pyramid itself has the shape of the old horse driven mining capstan so it makes sense that mining became a focal point in this type of folk art.
