Easter is absolutely magical in Germany. It is common for Easter to be decorated with figurines, Incense burners & Candleholders. The crowning glory, however, is always the Easter tree!
The tradition of the Easter tree is about celebrating the beginning of new like. For Europeans, Easter coincides with Spring and the tradition of having a small decorated tree is a symbol of this new life emerging.
When we talk about Easter trees, we are not normally talking about a 2 metre tall giant. Easter trees are generally smaller, at home we use a 1 metre tall white tree that has branches only (no leaves) like the brances shown below:
For many, the traditional route is best. If you have a large vase or bucket and some real tree branches, you can create your own display.
We stock a wide range of figurines, candle holders and Incense burners for Easter.
By far our most popular items, however, are our hand-painted tree decorations and tree eggs.
We expect to have our full range available by late January. With Easter being early in 2018, we will make sure we keep everyone informed as soon as stock arrives.
