The elements are connected with a rod in the middle, which rotates on a metal tip in a plate made of metal, glass or ceramic. Once the candles have gone out, the Christmas pyramid stands. Traditionally, handmade Christmas pyramids from the Ore Mountains are still operated with real candles. Where safety is a top priority, electrically powered Christmas pyramids have also found their way into the world.
