“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” ― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

The Christmas tree — a staple in many homes for families to hang ornaments, tinsel and lights from the festive firs, but did you know…
- The first decorated Christmas was in Riga, Latvia, in 1510.
- The first printed reference to Christmas trees appeared in Germany in 1531.
- Using small candles to light a Christmas tree dates back to mid-17th century.
- Every year since 1947, a tree has been given from Nordmarka, outside of Oslo, to Trafalgar Square in England. The gift is an expression of good will and gratitude for Great Britain’s help to Norway during World War II.
No matter the symbolism, a Christmas tree is a big part in many homes! And it can be part of your home (or album!) with this Christmas scrapbook layout!

Sweet, spicy, full of Christmas spirit and style… gingerbread houses! Did you know an early form of gingerbread can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Egyptians who used it for ceremonial purposes? And another fun tidbit: The popularity of gingerbread houses rose in the 1800s when the Brothers Grimm wrote the (well, not-so-Christmassy) fairytale of Hansel and Gretel, as the two children stumble upon a house made entirely of sweets. Well, no matter the history, these cookie-walled structures are a creative and tasty way to celebrate the Christmas season for kids and adults alike by decorating them with frostings and icings, gumdrops, festive sprinkles, peppermints, chocolates other candied elements. And whether you’re building the house from scratch or using a kit, blog contributor Kylie Kingham has a Christmas scrapbook layout with a cute gingerbread house craft to pay homage to the sweetly spiced tradition!
