When to Start Decorating for Christmas?

The 1st of Advent is usually the day we decorate our houses. It doesn't matter if the shelves of supermarkets are already filled with decoration and Christmas sweets in September. The holy commemoration Sunday of the death for Catholics is the last Sunday before the 1st of Advent, and religious people think of eternal life and memorize the ones they've lost. As soon as this date is over, the official time of decorating homes can start. The time until the windows and balconies of our neighbours shine comes quickly afterwards. Stars, Santa Clauses and colourful light chains fill the air with happiness.

Of course, you can start with comfortable accessories like scented candles and votive candles long before that date.

How Long can the Christmas Decoration Stay?

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 come into Being? And why?

The tradition of trimming 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 was believed to be especially around in the twelve nights between Christmas and the 6th of January. The green branches were thereby lovingly decorated with gilded apples, nuts and ribbons.

In the second half of the 16th century, people started to install decorated trees in their homes at Christmas. The noble houses hung fruits, coloured paper and jewellery, sweetmeat, nuts and gingerbread in their trees. That's the reason why the Christmas tree was called sugar tree at that time. 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 documentation about fir trees as Christmas trees comes from the Alsace of the early 17th century. The tradition spread quickly and today there are baubles hanging on 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.
