When to start decorating for Christmas?
The 1st advent is usually the day we decorate homes. It doesn’t matter if the shelves of super markets are already filled with decoration and Christmas bakery in September. The holy commemoration Sunday of the death for Catholics is the last Sunday before the 1st advent, and religious think of eternal life and memorize the ones they’ve lost. When that day ends, the official time of decorating homes started. The time until the windows and balconies of our neighbours shine comes fast afterwards. Stars, Santa Clauses and colourful light chains fill the air with happiness.
Of course, you can start with moody accessories like scented candles and votive candles long before that date.
How long does Christmas decoration remain?
Traditionally, the Christmas tree and the decoration remain unchanged until the 6th of January, which is the day of the Three Wise Men. Christmas ended officially on that day. Many cities organise a Christmas tree action on the following Saturday. There it is possible to let someone get your tree from your house for a little dotation. That’s the reason for many people to bring the Christmas decoration back into the boxes on the Friday before.
When did Christmas decoration appear for the first time? And why?
The tradition of decoration the Christmas tree started a long time ago. People decorated their homes with winter-green and burning lights for Christmas, in order to keep wild animals away. The army of ghosts should especially fly through the air in the twelve nights between Christmas and the 6th of January. The green branches were thereby lovingly decorated with gold-plated apples, nuts and loops.
In the second half of the 16th century, people started to install decorated trees in their homes at Christmas. The nobler families hanged fruits, coloured paper and jewellery, sweetmeat, nuts and gingerbread in their trees. That’s the reason why the Christmas tree was called sugar tree before. The children were allowed to shake the things off of the tree after Christmas. Burning candles were still placed to keep ghosts away in that time.
The first news about fir trees as Christmas trees comes from the Alsace of the soon 17th century. The tradition was fast spread in Germany and today there are baubles hanging at the trees, instead of apples. And instead of nuts and gingerbread there are stars and other pieces of design – maybe some of the Connox assortment. Be inspired by our selection and find some gifts for Christmas as well.
