You cannot celebrate Christmas without having a Christmas tree. I think it is the most popular Christmas Decoration there is. In some countries, they usually buy the tree itself from the people who grew them, while in other countries the trees are made of plastic. But whether it may be real or not, Christmas trees are a necessity and a huge factor of keeping and spreading the Christmas Spirit alive.
Back in the old days, Christmas trees were traditionally decorated with real fruits such as apple, nuts, candies or any other kinds of food that you can think of hanging on it. Then the lights that they hung on the trees were supposed to be real candles to illuminate it, but are now replaced by Christmas lights ever since electricity was invented.
Today, evidently things have changed and people have thought more outside of the box. You can have Christmas Trees in different sizes and different colors, depends on what you want and on what theme you have for your Christmas decorations as well. You will get to see all types of Christmas Trees in all places during the holiday season like the mall, the park, and schools and even at your favorite restaurants. And today, not only you can see Christmas trees with different sizes and colors but with magnificent decorations as well. People have become much more artistic as the years go by and their imagination has become more captivating. When before it was real food that was decorated on the Christmas tree now it is what we call Christmas Balls or Christmas Baubles, they also come in different sizes, shapes and colors depending on your favorite or what theme you want for your decorations.
While the most popular themes are Green and Red, there are other colors that are now becoming famous in the eyes of many people when it comes to Christmas Decorations. There is the Pink and Gold Christmas Tree Decorations that is now very popular especially to those homes that wanted a “girly” type of motif in their house. I remember once, when I was in college, my dorm-mate and I used to have a small Christmas tree and because we are all girls, we decided to use Pink and Gold as our Christmas theme in decorating the tree. And now, every time I see Pink and Gold Christmas Decorations anywhere, it reminds me of how my dorm-mate and I used to decorate our room before. It always brings back good old memories.
Another great color combination is the Purple and Gold Christmas Decorations. This color has also been very popular. And it is not just exclusive for Christmas tree decorations; there are others like ribbons, flowers and Christmas balls that are also made with the color of purple and gold can now be bought.
So now, you can really decorate your house with that color because of all the wide selections you get to choose from. This color seems to be more elegant then Pink and Gold, which is why it is beautiful to look at especially if you have a huge Christmas tree. You can buy lots of purple and gold decorations and combine them to other colors for the next year’s holiday season. Don’t be afraid to experiment because it will give you new ideas whenever you decide to mix and match colors.
Now the one thing that is significant in Decorating a Christmas tree is putting a Star topper. Well, usually it’s a Star because it symbolizes the Star that led the Three Kings to the Birth of Jesus Christ. But nowadays, it is okay if you don’t put a Star as a topper on the Christmas trees. There are other options that you can buy as Christmas toppers. One that is now very cute and unique is the Elf Hat Christmas toppers. These are very popular with the children because it reminds them of Elves up in the North Pole where they believe Santa lives to make their toys. Kids usually ask their parents to lift them so that they can put the Christmas toppers themselves on to the Christmas tree. There is just something about putting the final touch to a Christmas tree decoration that makes the children very happy.
Christmas tree decorating is sure is a lot of work to do. You need to prepare all the stuff that you want to hang on the tree so that you won’t have to go out and buy every now and then whenever you forget something. It can also take a lot of time to think of what theme you would like to have on your tree, so it is much better to think ahead of time for you to know what to buy as well.

The way your children lends you a hand to hang Christmas balls on the tree, how the father lends a helping hand for you to help with the high to reach places, it is the way the kids unwrap their presents underneath the Christmas tree. Those are the things that make the tree significant. Actually, it is what really about, about spreading the love, spending time with people that matters most to you, wrapping in each other’s arms during the cold breeze that the holiday season brings.
