                      Christmas tree decorations from the Erzgebirge

                      No celebration without a Christmas tree or Advent bouquet. Festively decorated, the Christmas tree with tree decorations of all kinds is a natural part of the most wonderful time of the year. There are no limits to the taste of trees and tree decorations . Fairy lights, garlands, glass balls, fretwork, figures. Christmas tree decorations such as tinsel, wax candles, glass birds, straw stars – all of these adorn the tree today. But where does the tradition of setting up decorated fir, spruce or pine trees in the room at Christmas come from? Decorated with Christmas tree decorations made of wood, glass, porcelain or all imaginable materials and, above all, shapes?

                      Christmas tree decorations – the tradition

                      The tradition of Christmas tree decorations has been around for hundreds of years. Originally, the tree was decorated with treats for children : apples, nuts and sweets served as temporary decorations. Candy canes and baked goods were also popular. It wasn't until the 19th century that families began using artificial tree hangings that could be reused year after year.

                      Following the tradition of using apples (reminiscent of the fruits of the Tree of Knowledge from the Bible) as decorations, the first Christmas tree baubles made of glass were created in the middle of the 19th century. Tinsel has been used as Christmas tree decorations since the end of the 19th century. According to tradition, it symbolizes the appearance of ice. It has now gone somewhat out of fashion. Today, glassblowers also produce smartphones, cupcakes, clowns and shimmering lipsticks - the main thing is that you like it. The American market in particular is receptive to this. Nevertheless, most families still decorate traditionally. Many people pass on the tree decorations - valuable baubles and hand-carved pieces made of wood - from generation to generation.

Here, too, individual pieces are lovingly handcrafted that are affordable but still durable and of high quality . The toymakers are keepers of numerous traditions that arise from mining in the region. The poor miners not only made artistic candle arches, incense smokers and Christmas pyramids. Christmas tree decorations from the Erzgebirge – carved, turned or fretwork – were also made at home. Even today, the small works of art show the craftsmanship of the people of the Erzgebirge. When it comes to glass art, Lauscha in Thuringia is still a household name today - also for modern Christmas tree decorations made of glass.
