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.

SnowCastle is rebuilt every winter and it offers wonderful experiences for children and adults. It is magnificent example of the great skills of local architects and builders. Natural snow is too soft, for that reason architects make the snow out of the sea water by using snow pipes. Snows castle also offers snowrestaurant with ice tables and seats covered with reindeer fur, as well as ice sculptures. The SnowCastle 2012 will be opened on January 28th, 2012.
