Christmas decorations in the world

It is very likely that this year you're looking for an idea for decorating your home at Christmas in a non-traditional way. A good idea can then be take some ideas of decoration elsewhere and adapt them to our homes. For this purpose we have compiled some interesting decorative traditions of the world. We hope that you like. Let's start by Ukraine: there it is customary to put Christmas trees in a spider's Web (can be an ornament with that form, a wreath on a...). Legend has it that Christmas decorations came to a poor widow who could not pay take a Web that you had in your House and put it as an ornament on the tree. That brought luck to the following year.
In the Philippines love Christmas to the point you start to decorate the streets in September (... and then we complain that increasingly put the lights sooner). These decorations in the circular motifs and representations of round fruits abound. These forms resemble coins and, therefore, predict future riches. In fact there also is customary taste up to 13 types of fruit rounded during these dates.
This is curious because Christmas trees balls symbolize the fruit of the forbidden tree (i.e. apples). This ornaments also have its meaning: the lights represent the light of God; ties, family;and the star, the faith that guides the Christian. We do not know if the tinsel and wreaths representing the serpent who tempted Eve... Although everything might be.
In Italy the decoration is very similar to ours - not in vain is a Catholic country in addition to Latin, but in many households is not decorated a tree but a wooden pyramid. This is apparently because in those lares evergreen trees are Mediterranean pine, whose form is no beaked as the of the Alpine pines. However we have not found sufficient references that indicate that it is a common custom (or real) but leave it here because we have found a very curious, different and even ecological idea.
If you're looking for a fascinating motif in addition a little-known recommend yourselves with a "Weihnachtspyramide" or "Pyramid of Christmas", very typical in the region of the Ore mountains, between Germany and the Czech Republic. It's a curious artifact resembling a small carousel within which there are figures of a Nativity, Angels, or other typical scenes, the are placed around candles and on it there is a kind of propeller. As well: the carousel rotates because the air warmed by candlelight moves the propeller. If you manage to get one of these pyramids you will be the feeling of Christmas dinners.
Less spectacular but equally showy is the Greek tradition: in addition to the Greeks trees adorn boats with lights. This is due to the great seafaring tradition of the Greek people, something that we know all the lessons of history and the readings of Homer.
Another Christmas decoration that takes up a symbol of a pre-Christian era is the goat Swedish. In Sweden the trees tend to have ornaments shaped the form of this animal. This is because the skip (the Swedish Santa Claus) moves in a sled pulled by goats. Interestingly, this is the same means of transport used by Thor, the God of Thunder. Well, curiously not: many specialists believe that the skip is a representation of Thor passed through the filter of Christianity.
We will finish the article with a mention of the mistletoe used in Anglo-Saxon countries. As you know this decoration has his grace because if a couple just below this floor you must Kiss (is ideal for celebrations of work in which you want to "join" two colleagues). Once the mistletoe was considered a remedy for all diseases, even for wars. In this way the peace accords between Nations or clans are sealed under a branch of mistletoe. One thing led to another and thus ended with the expression of reconciliation and love of excellence, the kiss.
Here our recommendations. Of course there are many curious and meaning around the world with decorations. Now that we have nothing easier Internet to investigate further to give our House a Christmas touch "universal".
