A Christmas tree is one of the most popular traditions associated with the celebration of Christmas. It is normally an evergreen coniferous tree that is brought into a home or used in the open, and is decorated with Christmas lights and colourful ornaments during the days around Christmas.

Our Silver Tree
by: Pamela Price Svoboda

In my family it was traditional to put up a silver (fake) Christmas tree each and every year.  You see, we all had asthma and we couldn't have a real tree inside the house so our parents did the next best thing and started putting up a pretty silver one that had a multi color, color wheel that would shine on it and make the shinny silver tree change colors.  To me it was the most beautiful Christmas Tree I had ever seen and it out did all the other green trees that my friends had.  Mother even filled the silver tree with hand beaded ornaments that she made herself.  The tree was a glistening wonder of fake beauty and I could lay under it's branches and watch the sparkles for hours and hours.

Why a Christmas Tree skirt was invented

Did you know that when the first Christmas Trees became popular they were lighted by using candles?  Well they were.... and did you know that
a mat (UK) or skirt (US) was placed on the floor below the tree to protect it by catching the dripping candle wax?  Yep it sure was!  This is why and how the Christmas Tree Skirt was invented.

A Christmas Tree Skirt is still traditionally used under all Christmas Trees as a decorative feature.  It's no longer traditional to light a tree with candles anymore since electricity was invented but the Christmas Tree Skirt has other great usages like catching the needles that fall to the floor and also to hide an unsightly christmas tree stand.

In many families it's traditional to hand sew a family tree skirt and pass it down to the later generations.  These type of Christmas Tree Skirts are usually more ornate with lots of beading and embroidery on it to make it special.  These skirts would be more like keep sake skirt quilts.
