A Christmas tree is a decorated tree, usually an evergreen pine, spruce or fir tree with all-year-round foliage that is beautified, with ornaments as a part of the festivities. It is symbolic of the birth and resurrection of Jesus, while its branches and shrubs symbolize immortality and the crown of thorns worn by Christ. The Christmas trees can be fresh-cut, potted, or artificial with out-of-the-box designs that can spark one’s creativity. Here are some unique ideas that can help one to continue with the annual Christmas tree tradition and experiment with unconventional décor ideas for the Christmas tree.
