Aside from the presents and Santa Claus, another staple during the Yuletide season is a Christmas tree. They can be actual live trees, plastic ones with realistic leaves, or modern versions made of various materials.
In the olden times, people made use of evergreen trees as Christmas trees during the winter. Tree species like fir, pine, and spruce stayed green and full even with heavy snowfall, which was great to use as decorations. Evergreens were also believed to keep away witches, evil spirits, and general bad luck from entering the homes.
But it was the Germans who started the tradition of putting up a tree for Christmas. Eventually, German settlers brought the tradition over to the US in the 1830s. However, in Australia, there’s no snow in December, so having live evergreen trees wasn’t very practical for settlers to do in the 1700s. Instead, they gathered available plants in the area to still keep with the English Christmas traditions.
This fiberglass Christmas tree is perfect for those who can’t have a live evergreen as decor. Standing at 7 feet, it comes with pre-painted baubles and even snow. It can even be detached for easier storage.
Colours: Green body, red and gold baubles, white snow
