Decorating the Christmas tree with colorful glass balls every year at Christmas is a tradition. But where does this custom actually come from?

Christmas tree glass balls in all colors are usually part of Christmas. The custom of decorating the Christmas tree has existed since the Middle Ages. Until the 19th century, everyone who could afford it hung treats like apples, nuts, or gingerbread on their Christmas trees.

According to tradition, in 1850, a glassmaker from the Thuringian Forest, who could not afford the sweets, finally came up with the idea of blowing glass balls instead and decorating the tree with them. This idea was so popular that it caught on over time and is now the most common type of Christmas decoration.
