Infographic | Christmas tree traditions around the world

It’s nearly there! And I wonder if you already finished your shop or put your Christmas tree up. I bet you answered no for the first question and a yes for the second one. We do love that Christmas vibe that a nice tree brings to our home this time of the year.

To celebrate the start of the Christmas season, Bloom & Wild has created an informative and festive infographic that explores global Christmas tree traditions and highlights the significance of the Christmas tree around the world.

The infographic also details British Christmas tree and Christmas décor trends and rituals. With around £2.3 billion each year being spent on Christmas trees and decorations, it’s clear that the Christmas tree is still very much a mainstay in British culture during the festive period.

Bloom & Wild’s infographic reveals some little-known facts and figures, as well as guidance on the maintenance of Christmas trees. For example:

  • The most popular Christmas tree in British homes is the Nordmann fir
  • A freshly cut Christmas tree should last up to 4 weeks
  • The best time to put up a freshly cut Christmas tree is between the 1st and 11th of December
  • If a Christmas tree is not taken down by the 5th of January it’s considered bad luck in the UK
  • It takes the average Christmas tree 8 years to grow to optimum Christmas tree size!

Through their infographic, Bloom & Wild showcases the cultural differences that are represented in different Christmas tree traditions around the world, but also illustrates how the Christmas tree is a universal symbol of the season that ultimately brings us together. From snow-tipped artificial trees and to Bloom & Wild’s mini Christmas trees that can be used to decorate even the smallest of spaces, there is a Christmas tree for everyone, no matter your circumstance!
