"Christmas tree" in Finnish

I heard, "Christmas tree" in Finnish is not Joulupuu, which would be logical, but Joulukuusi, which to me sounds like "Christmas six". Is it so, and why kuusi? And does noone say Joulupuu? =)

    "Kuusi" has two meanings. That number and also it is "spruce" in Finnish :).
