Christmas Tree - Tradition and History

Glaskugeln, Strohsterne und Lametta - Eine Kulturgeschichte des Christbaumschmucks

Christmas isn't Christmas without a Christmas tree! This is a tradition that enjoyed its first boom at the start of the 19th century, with decorations reflecting the characteristics of the region in question. Bohemia, in the north of the Czech Republic and Thuringia, is home to glass baubles and ornaments, while tinsel was invented in Nuremberg. Anita Lackenberger's new film doesn't neglect culinary matters either, because trees were not only decorated with glass, candles, angel hair and tinsel - there were also lots of sweets made of chocolate, egg whites, jelly and nuts.
