A Brief History Of The Christmas Ornament

Christmas Ornament is a simple icon of holiday cheer, but the bauble, actually have a history.

Evidence suggests that the practice of adorning ornament at homes with evergreen existed during the winter solstice dates as far back as the ancient Egyptians. Evergreen offered hope during winter’s cold days and long nights, serving a similar purpose in the various pagan winter solstice rituals of the Druids, Romans, and Vikings.

However, the modern Christmas tree tradition is thought to have dated to the 16th century Germany, where small evergreen trees were decorated with candles, apples, nuts, and berries as “Paradise trees” in church plays.

Over time, christians placed these decorated trees into their homes during the holiday season. The tradition, which became a Christian ritual, began to spread across Europe, which German immigrants brought this practice to America in the 18th and 19th centuries.

It was promptly rejected by Puritanical religious groups for its historically pagan connotations. Nonetheless, small communities of German-born settlers documented the continuation of this practice as early as the mid-1700s.

In the late 40s, a published picture of Queen Victoria celebrating Christmas with her German-born husband, Prince Albert, and their family around a decorated evergreen tree transformed the practice into a fashionable one, which was soon adopted by wealthy Americans.

As time passed, tree decorations became increasingly artful, featured in new materials such as tinsel, silk, and wool.

Now days, the most popular decoration for Christmas are candles, garlands, roping, swags, ribbons, poinsettias, wreaths, and christmas tree ornaments.
