Christmas trees

The Story behind the tradition of  Christmas  trees

This interesting video explains how  the decoration of  Christmas trees  started in the Victorian Age

I have often  decorated my Christmas tree: I used to do it as  a little child.

Today we are  using some old trees and love decorating them with  balls made of  paper, we  recycle materials which we would not use anymore. Usually small Christmas  trees are  given as presents  at Christmas. They are in different  sizes , shapes and colours....  a nice  tradition which makes our homes  welcoming and  we love them.

We are continuing  a tradition that  started  many years ago......
