There was the gift giving, the decorating, and most of all, the Christmas tree. Christmas trees were a fine tradition in one family. You would put more effort into decorating the tree every year than you would put in to almost anything. You would start picking out new Christmas decorations month ahead of time, get the whole room prepared, and finally go and pick out a tree.
Sometimes, you would have to get an artificial tree because some apartments simply won't accommodate a nice big Christmas tree. Nevertheless, some of the artificial Christmas trees were pretty nice. However, you can go out to the woods and pick out a fresh tree to cut down and take back home. There is nothing like natural Xmas trees. They have a beautiful scent, a natural look, and a majesty that imitations can never quite capture.
Of course, the Christmas tree ornaments are every bit as important as the tree itself. You would switch off duty as lead decorator. In particular, you would have a chance to pick out the Christmas topper. You even can made a Christmas Star yourself out of papier-mâché. It will look great above that Christmas tree. It will be one of the best Christmases that You will remember, and have pictures of it.
Of course, Christmas lights are also an important part of getting your Christmas tree in shape. You can put it old strands strung in series, the ones where all the lights will go out if one bulb goes out or depends on your own creativeness.
