Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some of the trimmings we’ve come to know and love. Decorating trees has been something that’s been around for a long time. You can’t beat getting out the Christmas baubles for a day of decorating the tree. Let’s have a look at the origins of it all and what you could be adding to your tree this year.
Christmas baubles were first introduced in Germany after trees were decorating with red apples for the miracle plays taking place outside of churches on Christmas Eve. Soon, these became the baubles we know and love. Decorations on tress became fashionable in the mid 1800s. The Royal Family posed next to a large tree decorated with beautiful and elaborate ornaments and the photograph became popular, on the verge of famous. This is how we ended up with the traditions of Christmas baubles on our modern day Christmas trees. Whatever your favourites, we’ve got plenty for you!
Lots of people have a wonderful tradition of getting a new bauble for their tree every year. It’s a cute tradition, especially if you get the kids involved. Then, after 18 or 20 years, or whenever they leave home and start their own family, they’ll have the makings of a decent box of Christmas baubles for their own tree. Check out these traditional Christmas baubles which will look fabulous on your tree this year and every year.
