And how decorated a fur-tree earlier? Christmas-tree decorations in the olden time pleased not only an eye: their big part after holiday was distributed to children as a gift. Therefore the majority of ornaments were edible – on a fur-tree they hung real apples, spice-cakes and figures from dough, covered with multi-coloured glaze, gilt nuts, and threads of beads from multi-coloured sugar candies. Fruits were wrapped into colour foil.
For example, in a fairy tale “Nutcracker”, the big fur-tree in the middle of a room was covered by gold and silver apples and on all branches as if flowers or buds grew sugared nuts, motley sweets and any other delicacies.
Later edible ornaments were replaced by wooden toys, cones and shell, there were paper flowers, silver asterisks and brass figures – angels, tell-tales, fairies. Glass blowers thought up glass – baubles, beads, icicles, first of which were from thick mirror glass. But in due course masters learnt to make thin-walled baubles.
Time introduced corrective amendments to traditional New Year’s ornaments and the real wax candles which lighted on fur-trees, replaced electric lights – garlands.
