Christmas tree:

The Christmas tree is a true German tradition. It was used here for the first time in the 15th century, and since then this wonderful custom has spread over the world. Here, we are very attached to our Christmas tree customs, and a German Christmas without the fir tree is simply unthinkable.

 Traditionally, the Christmas tree is decorated on Christmas Eve, prior to the evening feast and stays up until JanuChristmas_tree_sxc_huary 6, the day of Epiphany (the last day of Christmas when the Magi arrived at the manger).

In contrast to this all the public Christmas trees are decorated long before, usually on the 1st day of Advent. Many of them are outdoors in public squares, but also every major shop, company, church, etc. has its own Christmas tree.
