The Evolution of the Christmas Ornaments

By: Realstorm

Before celebrating the Christmas holiday, we should know the evolution of the Christmas decorations.

It is believed that the Christmas decoration derived from a witch ball to fend off evil spirits. As the glass made ball decorative, so people started to use them decorate their home. As time went on, the original green color was varied. In the later, they were made in different colors and sizes, and even the material started to be varied. Therefore it became fashionable to decorate the home with ornaments for Christmas in Victorian times. So Christmas ornaments started to take a hold in Victorian homes. The symbol of the ornaments was also changed.

From that time on, the range has increased steadily. The decorations have also been hung in different places: the mantle, windows, and front door as well as the Christmas tree. These days people can hang Christmas ornaments as they like. Inside or outside is doesn't matter.

In the 20th century, it is quite common that hang a new type of Christmas ornament on a tree. The chocolate that covered with a colorful paper wrapping would add a festive decorative effect on the holiday. In recent decades, many other Christmas ornaments have been decorated on the top of the Christmas tree.

Over the last hundred years, Christmas decorations have just got bigger and better, as well as greater variety. Now some areas become well known for their Christmas displays because people take a lot of time to decorate the outside of their homes with giant Christmas ornaments and all kinds of lights

The Christmas ornaments about decorating our own little piece of territory to make Christmas a special occasion will not change no matter what kinds of ornaments will appear in later.
