Christmas traditions have existed for thousands of years at this point in human history, even though most people tend to look at them in the short terms. One of the most popular theories on how the Christian world came to have Christmas trees and ornaments dates to the late 7th or early 8th century.
It is believed that a monk, later known to be Saint Boniface, came to modern-day Germany to preach. He is said to have been the first to introduce fir trees as part of the holiday celebration because he believed its triangular shape represented the Holy Trinity of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
Ornaments on Christmas trees are said to have been incorporated in the 15th century, again by Germans. Latvians in the 16th century are believed to have decorated trees with roses to honor the Virgin Mary at Christmas time. Whatever the exact roots, decorating trees with ornaments is now a popular choice.
The obverse of the 1 oz Silver Ornament Round features the most common of tree ornaments: a ball. This silver ball with no decoration to it is commonly found on Christmas trees inside millions of homes around the world each year at Christmas. The design includes the branch of a tree and features a greeting of “Merry Christmas”.
