This collection of more than 50 different delightful Christmas tree activities and crafts is sure to fill your holidays with joy.

When I was little, my most favourite thing about the holiday season was putting up our Christmas tree.

It was nothing grand. It was small, made of a metal frame with branches wrapped in plastic tinsel that you folded down to form the tree. It stood wobbly in a handmade base my mum had made years ago. With not much extra money to spend on anything growing up, we had that same tree from before I can remember to after I left home.

As a teenager, it somehow fell to me to put up the Christmas decorations. Looking back now I'm not sure if it was by want or need, but Christmas represented a magic that was often missing from my childhood.
