The Christmas tree is the centerpiece of your home. When Christmas comes, we all start decorating the house especially the Christmas tree. The decorated green tree has a significance. It is believed that Martin Luther from Germany has started the tradition of bringing Christmas tree at home. He brought the tree to express his feelings and love for his family members. He decorated the tree by lighting candles. Fire is an ancient symbol of spirit and green leaves of the tree represented the life force through the year (the ever burning fire of life).

We decorate the Christmas tree with many ornaments like shiny balls, starts, wreath, red ribbons, pearl necklaces, lights and candles. Well these all ornaments have a significance with the Christmas. For example, the balls represent the planets, the glittering stars connect with Bethlehem and the wreath welcomes the spirit of Christmas.

You can either buy an artificial or original tree and place inside the house or in the lawn. However, decorating the artificial Christmas tree indoors has been the most popular trend. Every year, you have to decorate the tree and make it look different. If you do not have Christmas tree decoration ideas for this year, check out the ornaments that you would require to decorate the tree.

Gifts are always used as an ornament for decorating the Christmas tree. You can either make small gifts and cover with red gift paper and hang on the tree branches or simply place gifts around the tree.
