Which Royal Couple Started off the Fashion for Christmas Trees?


The fashion for Christmas trees was started by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The couple is also depicted in a portrait dating back to 1846 where they are standing around a Christmas tree with their children. This activity became fashionable and it marked the arrival of the English Christmas tree.

The Christmas tree tradition started in Germany in the Victorian era when Prince Albert, who was the Consort of Queen Victoria, introduced the idea to England. They used an evergreen plant to serve as the Christmas tree and lighted it up with lightened candles and other decorations. Presents were also placed on the tree. Removing these decorations before the twelfth night was and still is in some places, considered ill-luck.
