Latest on December 24 in the morning it’s time: who has just got a Christmas tree, which is now as quickly as possible on the way – hoping to get even a fine copy. The custom at Christmas to set up a tree and to embellish with jewelry dates back already to the middle ages. A so-called paradise tree with cookies, paper flowers, apples and nuts on December 24 – Adam and Eve – was decorated at that time the feast day. Partly, this jewelry was already at that time even gold-plated or silver-plated. At some point even gold or silver colored tinsel, glass balls, straw stars and improvised jewelry that had these decorative elements.
Christmas Decorations and Its Variety of Colors and Shapes
Also today, a Christmas without decorated tree is unthinkable for many people. Especially the Christmas ball is a popular decoration for the Christmas tree. It was Justus von Liebig, which succeeded in 1870 to coat glass with a shiny silver solution. The shiny balls became an outright export hit and now available in many colors and shapes. A classic Christmas ball is indeed round, but for example also hearts, toadstools, frogs, lipsticks or Quitscheentchen as tree ornaments are available – is what I like.
