We know that Christmas is fast approaching, and you are busy decorating your home in festive green and red to create the holiday mood. Christmas is a fun festival that allows you to think out of the box and have a good time together, not only when it comes to entertainment/celebrations but also in planning the decor.
The green/white Christmas tree (fir) is the centerpiece of Christmas decor. It can be natural or artificial and has been an integral part of Christmas culture for centuries. It is the beginning of a new year and the return to life in the darkest and most adverse situations.
Fun fact: Christmas tree decorating with ornaments, stockings, and tinsel in different colors started in Riga, Latvia, Europe, in 1510.
Christmas decor should be unique and different each year. Think of your fir tree as a blank canvas. Use it to unleash your creativity.

Traditional Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas with Light
These tips will show you how to make your Christmas tree glow beautifully in your living room.
- Before you buy lights, measure the tree. This will ensure that you have enough light to cover the entire tree. Mini lights typically require 100 to 140 square feet of tree space. If the tree is 6-10 feet long, you can get 600-1500 mini-lights.
- Choose the type of Christmas lights that you would like to include.
- You can choose from large bulbs, icicles, battery-operated candle lights, mini-string lights, or a combination.
- Plan on how to hang the Christmas lights on the tree – vertically/horizontally. Decorators generally recommend that string lights be turned vertically (top to bottom) as it reduces the risk of them falling and makes them easier to take apart. It also looks neater. To create depth and visual interest, place the lights inside the branches.
