Christmas Decorations

These are photographs of just some of the many Christmas decorations put up in the houses of Camphill Milton Keynes.

Christmas decorations can be of any of several types of ornamentation used at Christmastime and the greater holiday season. The traditional colours of Christmas are pine green (evergreen), snow white, and heart red. Blue, pink, and white are often used to represent winter, or sometimes Hanukkah, which occurs around the same time. Hanukkah is a Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. It is also known as the Festival of Lights. Gold and silver colours are also very common, as are other metallic  colours. Typical images on Christmas decorations include Baby Jesus, Father Christmas, Santa Claus and the star of Bethlehem.
