Early Origins of Christmas Decorations

residential Christmas light installers Ann Arbor

It’s December, and that means it’s time for ice skating, hot chocolate, and most importantly, Christmas. Before you go all out preparing for the most wonderful time of the year, knowing why we decorate can make it much more special.

One of the first displays of this kind of decorating comes from ancient Rome, when Saturnalia, a December holiday honoring the agricultural god Saturn, was celebrated. Romans would take off from work and other duties and decorate their homes with wreaths and other greenery. This celebration also involved music, eating, socializing, and gift giving, and is the source of most of our current Christmas traditions.


While early Christians didn’t really support decorations, traditions changed over time, and the modern Christmas tree spreading through Europe between the 1500s and 1800s cemented their as part of the holiday. Nowadays, Christians’ decoration are motivated by faith, and are a reason to remember why Christmas is celebrated.
