Christmas Trees Around the World

The Christmas tree is recognized throughout the world even though Christmas is not celebrated by everybody. Although trees were first decorated in the seventh century, lit trees became a tradition in seventeenth century Germany when, in order to mimic twinkling stars at night, candles were pinned to the trees with pins or melted wax. While browsing the web I came across some pictures of Christmas trees lit up in different parts of the world. These pictures show us that the lit tree is the most recognized symbol of the season globally.

Granted, some of these are not your traditional Christmas trees. It must be quite a feat, decorating one. Fortunately or unfortunately, I do not have that perfect tree outside. If I did, I would probably want to decorate it with strings of white lights. I have started to notice some of the beautifully lit trees while driving through neighborhoods. Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, people are on to decorating for the next big holiday season. And we do try to make a trip into NYC to marvel at the Rockefeller Center tree. Do you have a tree in your garden which you decorate for the holidays? I would love to hear about it.

  1. Wow how wonderful to see trees all over the world. We do have a tree in our yard, yard being three acres, that we decorate for the birds and they love it. We don't put up our Christmas tree until a week before but now I want to start putting them up!

  5. The Christmas tree has truly become universal! All of the trees are beautiful examples of this symbol of the season. We have several trees in out front with lights wound around their trunks. I love to drive around and look at all of the light displays.
