What is Christmas without a tall tree decorated beautifully with lights, balls, ribbons, and perhaps even Swarovski gems?
Christmas tree lighting is always a big event during the holiday season at this time of the year especially in Taipei. Weeks before Christmas, five-star hotels like the Grand Hyatt Taipei and the Grand Formosa Regent Taipei take the lead in showing off dazzling trees and even organizing charity events. Shopping centers, too, compete in decorating the premises with Christmas trees to spread the festive mood. Often enough, Santa Claus makes his roly-poly presence felt near the Christmas tree.
The Christmas tree, usually an evergreen, is an excellent symbol of life in color. Green signifies defiance against the wintry cold. The three points of the tree suggest the Divine Trinity during the annual Christian celebration.
Good wishes and gifts are generously exchanged under the tree at home every year. The Germans even keep alive a tradition to put on lighted candles on Christmas eve. Even the family
Christmas dinner takes place next to the tree. Children get all excited about the magic of the holiday season as soon as they see a tree go up complete with twinkling lights in the living room. Underneath the tree, they expect to find their wished-for gifts: from doll to toy train, from teddy bear to play station.
In some countries like the Philippines, outdoor Christmas decorations with special themes like the Nativity and the Midnight Mass are a good reason for parents to take their children driving around the city at night. Dads and moms in Taiwan can likewise make their little ones leap with joy by bringing them to the different places with impressive tree attractions, including one built with teddy bears and another one with gingerbread cookies, at this time of the year. When doing this, remember to bring along a working camera to take pictures for keeping in the scrapbook of Christmas memories.
Below are some of the Christmas trees, decked with all kinds of trimmings, worth checking out this year. Have fun sharing the experience with your loved ones.
