Ornament Your Memories With This Christmas Scrapbook Layout

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!
