Some decorations become family heirlooms like this vintage beauty!


There's nothing quite like making a hand crafted Christmas decoration. Sure, the store bought ones are very classy and nice. That's fine if you like to emulate a department store Christmas display, but what if you want something special and unique to your family? Come all ye faithful to the Logan Hyperdome Library's Christmas Craft Family Fun event.

It's a free session during which you and your kin can celebrate Christmas together by creating your own decorations and paper gifts. The Christmas Craft Family Fun event starts at 11am and runs until noon on the fifteenth of December. While you don't have to pay a cent to attend, you will need to book on 07 3412 4120.

The most popular theory, though it's widely debated, is that Christmas decorations were first introduced by a monk in the 7th/8th century. Christmas trees as we know them now were first popular in Germany, and then made fashionable by the English royal family. First, Queen Charlotte, wife of George III introduced the custom to the royal household and their subjects. Later Prince Albert, beloved husband of Queen Victoria was more successful in spreading the Christmas tree fashion trend, especially after an influential image of the royal evergreen all decorated in finery was republished in the United States in the 1840s.

Many families these days will celebrate a child's first Christmas by making a bauble with their name and the date. Other families make ornaments with their kids and string them on the tree for generations to come. Perhaps you could start a family tradition at Logan Hyperdome Library's Christmas Craft Family Fun too.
