The Time Honored Christmas Tradition Of The Christmas Tree In Your Home
You probably don’t realize how much rich history there is in that Christmas tradition of the Christmas tree that you show off in your home. There are some beautiful stories behind how the Christmas tree began to sit as such a main fixture in the home, and now thankfully the tradition carries on centuries later. So though you may not realize it, you are carrying on this wonderful time honored Christmas tradition through that Christmas tree and really helping to make it all your own.
The Christmas tree came about centuries ago in Germany when devout Christians began to bring decorated trees into their home. It began with decorating trees with fruit and other food items. Then as time went on it began to be all about candles and other electrified items. This evolved into the strands of Christmas lights and the beautiful decorations that so many of us know and love today.
It’s so wonderful to pay homage to your past and yet celebrate your future with your Christmas tree each year. You can put up decorations that have traveled from generation to generation as a nice start. Then you can add in beautiful lights and decorations that you pick out as a family or that help to celebrate big milestones in your life. The point is that by putting out the tradition of a Christmas tree you are helping to celebrate an age old classic fixture of this wonderful time of year.
How you make it your own is all up to you and this can be so much fun to plan for. Try adding new items each year while you celebrate past Christmases or traditions. This will make for a beautiful tree and also a great way of decorating it in a very personalized way.
