“Vologda Timber Producers” donated spruces to the temple

According to a good tradition, on the eve of the New Year and Christmas holidays it is customary to give presents. Ten forest beauties were a gift from the VLP Group of Companies to all the parishioners of the Church of the Prophet John the Baptist in Roshenya. The Christmas trees were specially delivered from Verkhovazhskiye woods.

Remember that in the church tradition this particular coniferous tree has been endowed with religious symbolism. The spruce is perceived as an image of the tree of “knowledge of good and evil,” under which all of human history began, and Christmas toys – a symbol of the forbidden fruit. The star, which is often placed at the top of the tree, is a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem, which showed the way of the Magi to the newborn Jesus.
