Yesterday's Question:
Q3) In what country did the tradition of making gingerbread houses at Christmas time originate?

A) In Germany, shortly after the Brothers Grimm published their collection of German Fairy Tales including the story of Hansel and Gretel, in the early 1800s.

Today's Question:
Q4) What were the first artificial Christmas trees made from?

9 ladies dancing....


  1. in the 19th centuary: The earliest artificial Christmas trees were wooden, tree-shaped pyramids or feather trees

  2. Hi Courtney! I live in Canada so it's typical for us to have some snow . We are in the minus 7 currently . I don't know the real answer to todays question but I'm going to say they were made out of plastic and wire like they are today lol idrk.

    or would you look at here!....The earliest artificial Christmas trees were wooden, tree-shaped pyramids or feather trees, both developed by Germans. [source wikipedia]

  3. Well I have two answers actually. I read that the first artificial Christmas tree was made out of pig bristle, but in general artificial trees were made of goose feathers dyed green.

  4. I keep answering the question on the Rafflecopter first and then scrolling down really quickly so I'm not tempted to read everyone else's answers first lol.

    I have no real idea but I'm guessing the first fake ones were made out of real Christmas tree branches. But now that I'm thinking about it, I don't know how that would work. Preservation and all. Oh well!
