The tradition of Christmas trees is said to date back to the 7th century when a monk went to Germany to spread the word of God. The monk used the triangular shape of the tree to represent the Trinity – God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. The first Christmas Ornaments were glass blown ornaments made in Germany. Today we have a wide variety of Christmas ornaments to choose from including glass, pewter, porcelain, wood, and stone. A Christmas Ornament makes a wonderful Christmas gift for friends and family.
