Once Thanksgiving is over, Christmas trees will start to shine through front windows across the country. Despite the fact that they are all Christmas trees, each one looks a bit different from the next. Try some of these popular themes to give your tree that extra special appeal.
Remember, no matter how you personally celebrate Christmas, this holiday is a religious one that in honor of the birth of Jesus Christ. Try to emulate that spirit in your Christmas tree. Select an array of crosses or inspirational quotations that remind onlookers of the true meaning of Christmas. Little manger scenes or ornaments showing Santa bowing down to Jesus are other ways to make certain that your tree is emblematic of the holiday. Many families will also place a manger on the tree skirt as well.
Other individuals tend to choose a specific set of characters to adorn their Christmas tree such as Looney Tunes or Disney figures. You might wonder how many possible character themed Christmas tree ornaments are out there on the market, and if you speak to a character aficionado, you’ll find that quite a vast assortment does exist. For example, you might be able to purchase a sleigh that depicts Mickey Mouse dressed in a Santa Claus costume, or an ornament showing Taz opening up a big pile of presents on Christmas morning. No matter what types of characters you’re interested in, there’s something out there for you.
Instead of choosing ornaments that have to do with characters, you can opt for ones that show your own family’s personal style. For example, maybe you love a refreshing glass of wine at the end of a long day, and your husband is a big fan of the New York Yankees. You can certainly purchase little wine glass ornaments and New York Yankees ornaments to make the tree a true reflection of you. Another suggestion is to start a tradition of picking out one personal ornament per year. By doing so, you’ll still allow the tree to show the unique tastes of your family, but you’ll also be bringing in those traditional elements that are so important to remember during the Christmas season.
No matter what theme you choose, your tree is certain to be beautiful. Even if you pick something that’s a little off beat, guests to your home on Christmas day will be delighted by the decorating decisions you have made.
