The Christmas is coming and along with it all the festivities and a season to give and celebrate. We can feel happiness and joy in the air, time when everybody is running around to get decorations, presents, making plans and schedules. Yes, it is Christmas time that can so easily boost our spirits and make all our schedules similar i.e. the one thing that we all do for Christmas is making the Christmas decorations, and the main item is the Christmas tree. The moment when the whole family is gathered around it and everyone makes his/her own contribution to the final look of the tree. Since everyone has a specific taste, a wish or an idea of how the tree should look like, sometimes it is difficult to agree upon one suggestion. That’s why we are here for you. We prepared a gallery of the most beautifully and creatively decorated Christmas trees, with all kinds of decorations, many styles and suitable for many interiors.
A Christmas tree is a decorated tree, usually an evergreen conifer such as spruce, pine, or fir associated with the celebration of Christmas.
The tree was traditionally decorated with edibles such as apples, nuts, or other foods. In the 18th century, it began to be illuminated by candles which were ultimately replaced by Christmas lights after the advent of electrification. Today, there are a wide variety of traditional ornaments, such as garland, tinsel, and candy canes. An angel or star might be placed at the top of the tree to represent the angel Gabrielor the Star of Bethlehem from the Nativity.
The custom of the Christmas tree developed in early modern Germany (where it is today called Weihnachtsbaum or Christbaum or “Tannenbaum”) with predecessors that can be traced to the 16th and possibly 15th century, in which “devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes.” Christmas trees were hung in St. George’s Church, Sélestat since 1521. It acquired popularity beyond Germanyduring the second half of the 19th century. The Christmas tree has also been known as the “Yule-tree”, especially in discussions of its folkloristic origins.
