Christmas decorations are traditionally used to celebrate the start of the festivities and help people prepare for the festive season.
The most common Christmas decoration is the Christmas tree. This is usually an evergreen tree, such as a pine or fir, that is decorated with lights, tinsel and baubles.
Christmas trees can be artificial or real and the Christmas.co.uk site has a lot of information about them.
Other popular Christmas decorations include wreaths, which are traditionally made from evergreen plants and decorated with ribbons, berries and baubles.
Christmas lights are also a popular way to decorate homes during the festive season. They are often used to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Christmas cards are another tradition with people sending cards to family and friends to wish them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. These cards are used to decorate a home and help show that you are in someone’s thoughts.
