The tradition of decorating Christmas trees with ornaments goes back to the mid-1800s, when glass blowers in the German town of Lauscha created the iconic glass balls we still use today. When an engraving of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (her German husband) was published in 1848, the trend spread like wildfire. Today, many families' favorite Christmas tradition is putting ornaments on the tree, and the most beloved ornament is the first one. Whether it commemorates a couple celebrating their first Christmas together or a baby's first Christmas, the first Christmas ornament holds a special meaning for the family.
