In the Middle Ages, a popular religous play depicted the story of Adam and Eves expulsion from the Garden of Eden.A fir tree hung with apples was used to symbolize the Garden of Eden the Paradise Tree. The play ended with the prophecy of a saviour coming, and so was often performed during the Advent season.
