A favorite festive holiday custom of Easter is decorating Easter tree that traces its roots back to Germany. The traditional Easter trees used to be decorated with bright colored eggs hung to the branches in a vase. Now-a-days, to add colorful touch and festival look, many homes in the front yard hang colored or dyed eggs and other decorations on real trees to give a festive spirit to the neighborhood.
A variation on the temporal Easter Tree custom is based on the Bible. Ornaments from scriptures starting with Genesis and ending with the Resurrection will be created by many Christian families. These ornaments are made with the help of kids and they are handmade to decorate the Easter Tree. While observing the 40 days of Lent, you can add one ornament per week or per day till the end of the Holy Week.
With this holiday custom, many families will have lots of fun by decorating the Easter tree with colorful ribbons and eggs.
To make any Easter Tree ornament at home, you have to plan ahead and see how you will bring a different reason to the festival season!
You can use your own imaginations and ideas, and you can even take the ideas of kids or what they want to be on their Easter Tree and make an interesting and unique Easter Tree which everyone will love!
