Here’s one review from a happy buyer:
“It's super cute, and SO reminiscent of the ceramic tabletop tree that I had growing up! (Immediately why I bought it.) I see that everyone is complaining that it doesn't light up - pay attention to the price point.
"You won't get that functionality at that price. BUT - it is hollowed out, and there is a metal hook/attachment inside of it so that you can string one of your tree lights up into it and illuminate it that way. It was super easy to do and looks really cool on our tree! I absolutely recommend this ornament.”
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.
