In early America, Christmas celebrations centered on friends, family,
fun and foodmuch like our festivities do today. Early settlers in
America brought Christmas traditions from the "Old World" to the new,
celebrating the holiday as they did back home. Churches were often
decorated for Christmas while individual homes were decorated less
frequently and more sparsely. Christmas decorations of the time involved
natural materials such as holly, mistletoe, bay, and evergreen. While
decorated trees as a part of Christmas celebrations appeared in Germany
as early as the 16th century, the Christmas tree did not become a
fixture in American holiday homes until well after Queen Victoria's
family was pictured with a decorated Christmas tree in 1848. Early trees
were ornamented with candles, apples, nuts, and homemade decorations.
