Traditions associated with Christmas, German immigrant style, are still part of the Yuletide season for many North Carolinians. Traditions traced back to German immigrants also with a religious base include the Moravians’ Putz, a nativity related decoration, and Lebkuchen, a cookie. A holiday tradition with a somewhat dubious origin was the Christmas tree, this decoration possibly brought in by Hessian soldiers during the Revolutionary War.
