Photographer's Note

The Christmas tree is a tradition (often associated with Christmas gifts and the Nativity scene), which appeared in the Middle Ages in Germanic countries and became widespread from the 19th century. Under Queen Victoria: Prince Albert introduced this tradition from British native Saxony1 on British soil, while in France, it will be disseminated by Alsatian and Lorrain optics2. Christmas trees are nowadays traditionally decorated with glass or plastic Christmas balls, traditional garlands or lit by LEDs, candles, small decorative objects, stars (often one at the top), etc.

Christmas trees can be sold cut or in pots, which allows the latter to be replanted at the end of the festivities. The replanted tree can itself be used as an outdoor Christmas tree: the generalization of "all weather" electric garlands allows individuals to decorate a tree in their garden, often visible from the street, as well as the facade of their house.

The use of plastic artificial fir, often foldable, reusable, is an alternative to that of natural fir. Some of these trees are sold "snowy" (the leaves are white plastic or they are covered with white powder) or even decorated (pre-hung balls and garlands) or even scented. This treatment can also be done on natural fir trees. The public image of a plastic tree is less positive than that of a natural tree, but it is often the most economical (long-term), least messy and easiest (no elimination of the tree to be planned) for who lives in town. In addition, the variety of sizes allows you to choose a tree corresponding to the space available in the home3. However, although it can be reused for several years, this type of tree is not ecological for all that because of its much greater environmental impact than that of a natural tree.
