Since  Britain’s Queen Victoria and Prince Albert decorated a tree as part of their holiday celebrations at Windsor Castle in the Christmas 1848, the christmas tree has become very popular around the world.

It has since become  a common sight in homes and city centers around the world, serving as cheery and bright reminders of the Yuletide season.
