The Christmas decorations are a fundamental part in the festivities that commemorate this time. Under this definition we find many elements that compose them such as the Nativity, Advent calendar or wreath. The latter is more rare today but was used very often in the past and is a wreath with four candles which are lit sequentially every Sunday before Christmas Eve and is located in the center of the table.
During the Christmas season what are also considered decorative are Christmas sweets which are placed in dishes such as the sweets, the shortbread, nougat, marzipan among others. But what I discuss in this post are the ornaments for excellence: The ones on the Christmas tree.
The Christmas tree motif is the soul of any home at Christmas and serves as a basis to make Christmas gifts around it. This pine is traditionally the World Tree, which is decorated with bright areas which represent the gifts of the earth, some lights that give meaning to the Divine Light and on the tip of this tree lies the Star of Bethlehem shaped like a comet. In this spruce can also be placed other gifts and decoration details.
Although this element was born as something religious, like most of the activities of these parties, as it has gotten older, it involves more than a typical Christian tradition. The decision to place depending on decorative items no longer depends on the religious significance they have but by how beautiful they are.
Among the traditional elements that are still used are the Star, placed on the top of tree, the areas of colors and sizes which are also called scenes, the bonds in gold, silver and generally covered in glitter. The lights originally were candles representing the light of Christ. But in truth, everyone can be very creative with their decorations and create something marvelous.
