What is Christmas without a beautiful, glowing and full-of-gifts Christmas tree, around which the whole family sits together, to make happy memories. According to Christmas traditions, people used to cut their own Christmas trees and then get them to their house.
Once at the house, the whole family, including the kids, elders and oldies used to spend hours in decorating the tree with various kinds of Christmas ornaments and decorations.
Today, people no longer have the time or inclination to go to such lengths! Although the sentiments attached to this festival remain the same, yet, people today want something as beautiful as the real tree and that too in an instant.
