    Did you know?

    Christmas decorations have long been an important element of the festive season. The silvery tinsel that we decorate our trees with originated from Germany in the early 1600s, showing that this tradition is long standing. However, the first real tinsel was actually made from real silver and cut into very thin strips. Now that's dedication to cause!
