Part Seven: Christmas Tree Decorations (4)

Written by Margaret Ikladious - Member of the American Press (USPA)

Today I would like to take you on a new episode about some other symbols in the Christmas celebrations that spread around the world as a continuation of the last parts of Christmas Treasures:

Sixth: Christmas tree decorations (Part Three):

25+ Christmas Train:

In fact, the train symbolizes hardships, patience, and long travel distances, just as the Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph bore the difficulties of the Christmas journey in the past, and just as the Magi traveled from their country to the city of Nazareth in search of the child Jesus..!!

And it was just a logical thing to put around the base of the tree because you can run a training circuit around the bottom of a tree safely, and although some trains have a wide circle that increases the diameter of the Christmas tree, it may even be placed in large and spacious rooms and halls.

It is believed that it was the perfect gift in the past for Christmas, and the train also indicates that Christmas is when many people travel long distances to reach their homes or to see relatives and loved ones..!!

26 + Christmas tree rug and skirt:

The circular skirt placed under the tree symbolizes union or an attempt to gather all together under one thing, which is the name of Jesus, the owner of the celebration.

The Christmas tree skirt is a round skirt with an open side that covers a Christmas tree stand.

  In addition, many people like to wear Christmas tree skirts to wear the bottom of the tree in a modern way and to pick up needles from the tree when they fall. Therefore, the dress is practical and contemporary in its use under natural or artificial trees.

It has also been observed that many celebrants place gifts under the tree in a circular shape.

27+ Red Christmas Truck:

While it could be clearer where the red Christmas truck image of an old Ford with Christmas trees on board came from, many can point to it as a symbol of the holiday season and travel as the Holy Family traveled before and after Christmas. 

The idea behind this truck show is to bring people together in a nostalgic mood for the holiday season.

It is also reflected in the color of the sacred berries, which also had pagan symbolism during the winter solstice celebrations in ancient Rome, and the green color denotes perpetual light and life.

And the choice of the red color came from her, as the red color is used at Christmas to represent Jesus when he died on the cross.

  Then, what does the red truck symbolize?

  The color red in dreams represents passion, anger, lust, sin, ardor, or enthusiasm.

I felt that since it is a "troubled" truck, red probably represents the more negative meaning of the color.

28+ Flashlights:

Christmas lights also symbolize the stars, particularly the Star of David that appeared in Bethlehem on the night of Christ's birth. 

Displaying Christmas lights in a large square or hexagonal hand lamps can remind us to follow Christ and his way.

29+ Birth Village:

A Christmas Village (or Butz) is a small-scale decorative village often set up during Christmas.

The roots of these villages go back to the elaborate Christmas traditions of the Moravian Church, a Protestant denomination that symbolizes the holiday and the city of Bethlehem.

Mass-produced cardboard Christmas villages became popular in the United States during the early and mid-20th century, while ceramic versions became popular in the latter part of the century..!!

This usually took the form of an elaborate landscape with animals that may or may not have alluded to the beings in the stable at Bethlehem or the passengers on Noah's Ark.

any biblical scene into a pure, lively genre." These have grown to include much more than a nativity scene with animations such as working flour mills, flapping dogs, running water with waterfalls, and electric trains and could fill an entire room..!!!

Families organize "both parties" and compete for the best show. The term is derived from the German verb putzen, which means "to clean" or "to decorate."

 These small buildings usually have holes in the back or bottom through which Christmas lights are placed to provide illumination. 

The buildings had small, tinted cellophane windows and decorated ceilings covered in mica dust to give the appearance of snow. 

Because these buildings were made of inexpensive materials and were widely available throughout the United States, Christmas decorations became very popular.

30+ Christmas Sleigh:

A sled is a mode of transportation specially designed for traveling over ice or snow. 

The sleigh is most commonly associated with Santa Claus, who, according to legend, uses a giant sleigh pulled by eight reindeer to fly around the world on Christmas Eve to deliver gifts to children.

But it refers to and symbolizes travel in the events of birth.
