Naturally, the Christmas tree is the main attribute of Christmas. It is believed that the Christmas tree tradition was introduced by Martin Luther, who first put the green beauty in his house. The fir-tree, as an eternally green plant, is a symbol of eternal life, which the Lord gives to every believer in Him.

The most fashionable Christmas decorations today are angels, hearts, bells and pipes, symbolizing the Good News. Balls symbolize apples from the tree of knowledge and gifts of the Magi to the little Christ. They can be complemented with other delicious products on the Christmas tree – sweets, nuts, fruits.
Do not forget about the various lights, without which it is difficult to imagine Christmas. Very good looking garlands with microscopic flickering lights. They can decorate not only the tree, but the whole room, but do it with taste.
If you do not put a Christmas tree, you can make a festive Christmas basket. In a wicker basket, add fruit and berries, fresh flowers and branches of coniferous trees. Decorate this splendor with “snow” from a can or cotton wool. You can fasten the branches of needles to a bundle of wire and place them in the center of the composition. To keep the needles longer, the ends of the branches are lowered into a small vessel with sweetened water.
