One of the most anticipated parties of the year for young and old is Christmas , with all that it entails of illusion, decoration, lunches, dinners and therefore those extra kilos with which we all end the festivities.

Are you bored of classic decoration?
Especially relevant this year in the shop windows and houses where there are many little ones is to decorate the tree with thematic figures, such as Santa Claus , snowmen, hearts, angels, owls, reindeer, pine cones, etc.
Have you ever wondered what this tradition of decorating the Christmas tree means and what is its origin?
Let’s immerse ourselves a bit in history, around the year 740, Saint Boniface (the evangelizer of Germany and England) knocked down the oak tree that represented the god Odin and replaced it with a pine tree, symbol of the love of God. This tree was adorned with apples and candles.
It seems that the first Christmas tree as we know it, arose in Germany, where it was placed for the first time in 1605 to set the festivity in a time of extreme cold.
The meaning of the decorative elements of the Christmas tree
The star : it is generally placed at the top of the tree, represents faith and reminds of the star of Bethlehem.
The little angels : they are in charge of protecting us, that is why they should not be missing from the tree.
Bows and ribbons : symbolizes family union and the presence of our family and friends around all the gifts that we want to give and receive.
The pineapple : as a sign of immortality and family unity.
The “balls” : it seems that Saint Boniface decorated the tree with apples. Today we decorate them with the balls or spheres that represent the Gifts that God gives to men.
The blue balls symbolize repentance; those in red, the petitions; the golden ones, the praises; and the silver ones, gratitude.
The lights : no matter what color you put them, they represent the light of Christ.
I hope that the spirit of Christmas enters your home and fills you and your entire family with peace, love, happiness and prosperity.
