The evergreen fir tree has been used to celebrate pagan winter festivals for thousands of years. The Christmas tree tradition started in the renaissance in northern Europe and Baltic countries, and it was then imported in the rest of Europe and North America in the early 19th century. The custom of adorning a tree became popular among the nobility, then wealthier middle-class families followed the fashion, till it became a very popular custom.
The first decorations were flowers, apples, sugar canes and pastries, then baubles and all sort of tinsels grew popularity. In recent year the Christmas tree reinvented with a touch of glam and every year there are new ideas and inspiring themes. For some families it is much more than just a piece fo decor, the tree tells a story, and each year a memory or a meaningful piece of decor is added.
