Christmas Window Watchers

Trivia:

The tradition of adding ornaments to trees kicked off in Germany in the 1600s, when fruits and nuts were laid on evergreens. Manufactured ornaments became all the rage when an image of Queen Victoria and the German Prince Albert’s Christmas tree, decked in baubles, was published in 1848 in “The Illustrated London News.” Source: Bob Villa – 20 Surprising Stories Behind Popular Christmas Decorations
