The practice of putting glass ornaments on spruce trees originated in Renaissance Germany and spread to the rest of Europe in the 19th century.
In America, few people put up Christmas trees until magazines began publishing idyllic pictures of the British Royal family gathered around a festively lit up and decorated spruce.
Both the colors and the shapes had a deep secular and religious significance. For example; the star represents the shining hope of mankind, the fir tree shows everlasting light whilst the bell signifies that all are precious in God’s eyes. In addition to this, the colors also have different meanings (i.e. the color red symbolizes The Jesus sacrifice for all, and so on). In later times, people started decorating their own holiday ornaments for all their wishes to come true on Christmas. All over the years, more and more ornaments were created for a number of historic and personal reasons.
