What is the Jesse Tree?
The Jesse Tree is the tradition of using a set of ornaments symbolizing the coming of Jesus; a way to help prepare our homes and our hearts for Christ on Christmas day.
The Jesse Tree gets its name from the prophecy of Isaiah 11:1, "And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse, and a flower shall rise up out of his root." The Tree of Jesse follows the genealogy of Jesus in such a way as to show that Jesus springs from the root of Jesse. The last seven days of this Jesse Tree set follows the O antiphons, or titles for the Messiah.
The Jesse Tree starts on December 1st and goes through Christmas Eve.
