The tree was traditionally decorated with edibles such as nuts or dates. In the 18th century, it began to be illuminated by candles, which with electrification could also be replaced by Christmas lights. Today, there are a wide variety of traditional ornaments, such as garland, tinsel, and candy canes. An angel or star may be placed at the top of the tree, to represent the host of angels or the Star of Bethlehem from the Nativity.
The custom of the Christmas tree developed in early modern Germany with predecessors that can be traced to the 16th and possibly the 15th century, in which “devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes.” It acquired popularity beyond Germany during the second half of the 19th century.
I’m going to put several photos of Christmas trees ..

Remember to make a Christmas tree you need just a bit of fantasy!!!
