"If Santa's been extra generous, there's plenty of room to stack pressies underneath rather than scattering them around it. It's also a great alternative to the traditional tree if you're a tad tight for space."
There's additionally a choice of more conventional tree styles on sale at the high street chain right now, with a third slashed off an extensive variety of Christmas tree choices for customers planning for the festive season.
According to Why Christmas, "The first documented use of a tree at Christmas and New Year celebrations is argued between the cities of Tallinn in Estonia and Riga in Latvia! Both claim that they had the first trees; Tallinn in 1441 and Riga in 1510."
The 16th-century German preacher Martin Luther may have been the first individual to bring a Christmas Tree into a house, in the way we know it today.
There's a story that one night before Christmas, Luther was strolling through the forest and looked up to see the stars shining through the tree branches.
It was so beautiful to the point that he went home and told his kids that it helped him to remember Jesus, who left the stars of heaven to come to earth at Christmas.
