Christmas Tree Memories


Christmas trees have come a long way over the past few decades. Memories of Christmas trees vary from person to person, but often contain images of small, wimpy artificial trees that seemed to get shorter each year, silver tinsel, thick colorful garland, and paper construction link chains. It is hard to believe that these trees of yesteryear were such sources of pride and festive cheer decades ago, but they were!

Today's artificial Christmas trees and live trees put those of past generations to shame. Live trees tower and are forced to get bigger and fuller each year, and artificial Christmas trees are more realistic and lifelike than ever before. Tinsel is almost a thing of the past, but tinsel trees are a modern twist. Upside down trees, Charlie Brown trees, colorful trees, and umbrella trees are all part of the current trend in Christmas trees. Live trees are getting pushed aside in favor of the allergy-friendly, flame-retardant PE/PVC trees with higher tip counts and longer warranties.

Below we honor the Christmas trees we found circa 1978-1983.










Take it back another decade:







A common theme for most of this time period appears to be silver.

Las Vegas Christmas Trees

Las Vegas, Nevada has always been known for its bright and vibrant casinos, hotels, and overall energy. Dubbed "Sin City", people flock from all over the globe to gamble at Caesars Palace and take in the gorgeous views of the Bellagio. While it needs no holiday to beckon its tourists, Vegas sure takes advantage of the fun that can be expressed through commercial Christmas decorations! Below are just some of the views of a Las Vegas Christmas.

















The honor of decorating any of the famed casinos, hotels, or streets of Las Vegas is reserved for only the very best. To those who receive the honor we applaud your jobs well done. I know these trees make me want to spend the holidays resting my head on a soft pillow at the Bellagio after taking in the sights. Also pictured above are the trees at Caesars Palace and the Luxor. If you have any amazing Las Vegas images of Christmas trees to add, please do so.
