Christmas decorations come in many different shapes and sizes, for many different uses. Christmas tree decorations can be traced all the way back to the early 19th century when German Saxons used to light candles and place them onto evergreen trees and adorn them with small trinkets. Nowadays, most people have specific Christmas decorations for their trees. You can decorate your Christmas tree with tinsel, lights, ornaments and baubles- whatever you like really! Most people top the tree with a star to symbolise the Star of David which was followed by the three Kings on their way to Bethlehem.


Other popular Christmas decorations are fairy lights. These are generally used to decorate the outside of the house as well as the inside. They show passersby that you are celebrating the festive season and the birth of Christ by decorating your house in preparation for the big day. Many people find Christmas decorations are a tradition in their neighbourhood and lots of people even have competitions to discover who has the best dressed house for Christmas! It is all good fun. Lights are also used to decorate the Christmas tree and the inside of your house to make it look warm and welcoming- fairy lights will really help to make your house look special and bright.


Other Christmas decorations include tinsel which is usually hung from the Christmas trees and have the traditional Christmas colors of gold and green. You can not buy tinsel in dozens of colors, from red and silver to blue and even pink! Christmas decorations are becoming a lot less traditional and more modern to suit the more modern family, modern Christmas decorations include pink Christmas trees, fibre optic Christmas trees and much more!


A more traditional form of Christmas decoration is the nativity scene. This depicts the birth of Christ, which is the true reason we celebrate Christmas every year. The nativity scene is usually placed in the house on a mantel or as a centre piece and shows the baby Jesus in his crib, the Blessed Virgin Mary, Joseph, the three wise men and sometimes it includes animals. It is set in the barn where Jesus was born and it is a great Christmas decoration for any family to have in their home, you can also see life sized nativity scenes which can sometimes be found outside of churches in the period of Christmas.
