Decorating a Christmas tree is a time-honored tradition in many households, even though Christmas tree decorating as we know it now didn't gain popularity in America until the late 19th century. Early decorations were mostly homemade ornaments and brightly dyed popcorn garlands, but today's decorations include everything from souvenir ornaments and handmade kids' crafts to lots of twinkling lights.
