Without Christmas tree decorations, Christmas preparations are incomplete. A Christmas tree is a decorative tree that is used during Christmas celebrations. Children, old, young and women from all walks of life take an active part in the preparation of the Christmas tree. Churches and other buildings around the world are decorated with Christmas trees on Christmas Eve. Light bulbs, snowmen bells and many other decorative items are the hallmarks of the Christmas tree. The pine tree is especially used for the Christmas tree. Christians believe that since the pine tree stays green in all seasons, it is a symbol of life. Christmas presents are also decorated with Christmas trees. The Christian belief is that Christmas is a celebration of joy, with the Christian community, especially for children who share the joy of making Christmas trees as well as spreading the message of peace and love.
The tradition of decorating the Christmas tree for Christmas comes from Germany. The world’s first Christmas tree became part of the celebration of Christmas in the early seventh century.
It so happened that a British monk named Boniface was preaching Christianity to a German town when he knocked down an oak tree to show that it was not sacred. Meanwhile, a small pine tree escaped. The monk called the event a miracle and named it the Tree of Jesus. The pine tree became part of Christmas celebrations, and by the seventeenth century, the Germans had spread the Christmas tree tradition throughout Europe.
In the United States, on December 20, 1821, this tree became part of the joy of Christmas. The Christmas tree ritual was limited to Germany until the 19th century. In Germany and neighboring countries, people installed the tree in prominent places in their homes and decorated it with colored paper, bells, small toys, food items and candles. When people migrated to other countries, they started carrying this tradition of decorating trees with them.
In the early days, various things were used to decorate the tree, but in the 19th century, Christmas trees began to be decorated with ropes, cards, pictures, cotton and candies of different shapes and sizes. Sometimes candles were also part of the decoration, but people avoided them for fear of catching fire, and later electric bulbs made up for the shortfall.
In the early days, handicrafts were used to decorate trees, which were quite expensive. Popcorn was also introduced in the United States to decorate the Christmas tree. In 1850, a German company began making glass beads for the Christmas tree. They also introduced triangular beads of netten with a golden shell mounted on top of the Christmas tree. Glass ornaments were first used in Britain in the 1870s, and in North America in the 1880s. Replace glass ornaments with electrical appliances in 1882. Edward Hubert Johnson first decorated the Christmas tree with electric lamps. He used 80 small bulbs. Electric fringes became widely used in the 1890’s, while Christmas tree decorations became commonplace in the next century.
We don’t get any initial mention of the Christmas tree. After Christianity in the Roman Empire, Germany was the second region to celebrate Christmas. The Germanic tribes had a tradition of decorating trees on the occasion of their festivals, so they also started decorating trees on the occasion of Christmas.
According to another tradition, some Germanic tribes converted to Christianity at Christmas in Germany، told The story of Jesus’ birth in the form of a play in which the tree was presented as Mary’s only companion with whom she had spent her time. Eventually, people considered the tree branches sacred and took them home. Gradually people started decorating trees in their homes. As time went on, the German symbolic objects were replaced by the stars, which symbolized the stars that appeared in the sky at the time of Christ’s birth.
As Christianity spread to different countries, many local rituals became associated with the festival. In the tenth century AD, when Christianity arrived in Russia, its inhabitants were already commemorating the dead in December and celebrating the beginning of the new year. So it was combined with Christmas to form a religious festival. In 1847, when the British Queen’s husband had to celebrate Christmas in Germany, he loved the colorful Christmas party, and on his return he brought a Christmas tree with him. So the very next year a huge Christmas tree was decorated outside the royal palace and millions of people came to London to see it. After that, Christmas celebrations began to be celebrated in a new way all over the world under the British shadow, which is being celebrated in the same way till today.

One lakh people are involved in this business. In Japan, about 60 Christmas trees are planted in the mountains of Ropongi, illuminated with a variety of LEDs, and millions of people flock there on the evening of December 24 to see it.
