What might Wellhead and Christmas Tree mean?

A wellhead is the component on the surface of an oil or gas well that forms the structural and pressure-containing interface for the drilling and production equipment. When the well is drilled, it is completed to establish an interface with the reservoir rock and a tubular channel for the drilling fluid. Surface pressure is controlled by a Christmas tree installed on top of the wellhead.
