Started 15th Century in Germany1800 Glass Ornaments became popularLauscha was the first industry to make glass ornamentsPickle Ornaments was a tradition in Germany1880 Ornaments entered the U.SShea: Decorating you Christmas tree was started around the 15th century in Germany. One family started decorating the tree to entertain their children by using candles as their decoration, which then eventually lead to putting nuts and fruits on the tree also. For a while that was all they used to decorate a Christmas tree, but in the 1800 glass ornaments became popular. This tradition branched outside of Germany and families everywhere began to start this ritual. In England, they became popular because of Queen Victorias husband, Albert, who was a German native, made the Christmas tree a part of the celebrations at Windsor Castle. The first industry to make glass ornaments was Lauscha, which was designated in Germany. A tradition that Germans started with glass ornaments was the pickle ornament. German parents would hide the pickle ornament somewhere in the tree and the kids would have to find it. Who ever was the first to find it got an extra present from Saint Nicholas. Ornaments entered the U.S. in 1880. F.W. Woolworth was the first to sell imported glass ornaments in America. Hallmark made ornaments popular in America with the Keepsake Christmas ornaments. They were found in a wide variety of ornaments that meant something special to each person.

This product line provided a wide variety of ornaments that meant something special to each person
