In the early 1800s, the German originated Christmas ornaments and decorations made their way into America. Slowly, these were widely used all over the world, and others too thought that these looked great on their trees instead of hanging apples or sweet goods.
The popularity of the Christmas tree skyrocketed during the reign of Queen Victoria. Despite the general distrust of the German population, the traditions were kept alive by her, which became the core part of the Christmas festivities. Slowly, having a well-defined and decorated tree became a fashionable answer to Christmas decorations.
