A Christmas tree is a decorated tree, usually an evergreen pine, spruce or fir with year-round foliage that is beautified, with decorations as part of the festivities. It is symbolic of the birth and resurrection of Jesus, while its branches and bushes symbolize immortality and the crown of thorns worn by Christ. The Christmas trees can be freshly cut, potted or artificial with out-of-the-box designs that can spark creativity. Here are some unique ideas that can help one continue with the annual Christmas tree tradition and experiment with unconventional Christmas tree decoration ideas.
