The magic of brightly colored balls invoke the spirit of christmas. Colored balls can come in all the colors and in all sizes, but they should be shining brightly so there is an element of metal suggested. The Christmas Tree itself originated in Germany in the 16th century. It was common for the Germanic people to decorate fir trees with roses, apples and colored paper. In America, a Christmas tree hadn’t been used until Germans immigrated in the early 1800s and brought the tradition with them.
