Christmas is a time of celebration and joy. Every year, we decorate our homes and workplaces with Christmas decorations to spread the cheer. But do you know the history of Christmas decorations?
The word ‘decorate’ comes from the Latin word ‘decorare’ which means ‘to beautify’. Decorations are an integral part of every celebration or event, as they add beauty and festivity to it. Decorations for Christmas were first introduced in 16th century Europe as a way to mark the end of Advent. They were usually made out of evergreen trees and wreaths, but in 19th century America, they started making paper decorations instead.
Christmas time is always a good time for family gatherings and sharing joy. However, the Christmas tree is the center of attention. It’s important to make sure that it’s decorated nicely and beautifully. In this article, we will share some tips on how to decorate a fake Christmas tree.
1) Place the tree in front of a window or near a window so that you can get natural light from outside to brighten up your living room or bedroom.
2) Keep your fake Christmas tree simple and clean by not putting too many decorations on it. You may want to use white bulbs or LED lights as they are more energy-efficient than traditional bulbs.
3) Use garland or ribbon around the base of your Christmas tree for decoration purposes only, not as decoration pieces on the branches themselves.
