Christmas Tree

Which is one of the first things that comes to your mind when thinking about Christmas? the tree!

The use of a tree as a symbol of the holiday season is said to have appeared in early modern Germany, with predecessors that can be traced all the way to the 15th or 16th century. At that time devout Danish Christians brought decorated trees into their homes and danced around them. It acquired popularity beyond Germany during the second half of the 19th century, at first among the upper classes.

The tree was traditionally decorated with edibles such as nuts, apples, chestnuts or other foods. In the 18th century, it began to be illuminated by candles which were ultimately replaced by Christmas lights of many sorts, shapes and sizes after electricity was discovered.

Today, there is a wide variety of traditional ornaments and everything seems to look great and snug placed on your Christmas tree. Garlands, tinsel and candies, namely candy canes, which are also a challenge to all the kids that really wish to eat them all at once!

Around the world you will surely find prominent beautiful Christmas trees. In the small village square or in the big plaza, smaller or bigger trees will appear shining over and opening way to ho ho ho‘s and Christmas carrols. They will be the joy and delight of all that gather around them.

So where can you find the most beautiful Christmas trees?
