The Christmas tree, or Tannenbaum became popular in America in the 1800’s. One of the largest and most famous is the one in Rockefeller Center in New York – you can see it here.
Our Christmas tree is not decorated with candles, berries, gingerbread and fruit, as they were in England many years ago. It does have clear lights and a variety of glass and china ornaments.
You’ve already seen my little dining room tea tree. There are a few tea theme ornaments that are just too large for that tree so they hang on the main tree.
Now, I think I’ll sit down and enjoy a cup of tea before continuing with my cooking and baking.
Hope you all have a blessed Christmas. I wish you peace and joy.
