Christmas decoration at Excellence Resorts

Did you know Germany is credited with starting the Christmas tree tradition as we now know it, when in the 16th century devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes?

Christmas Tree at Excellence Punta CanaIn 1846, the popular royals Queen Victoria and her German Prince, Albert, were sketched in the Illustrated London News standing with their children around a Christmas tree. Unlike the previous royal family, Victoria was very popular with her subjects, and what was done at court immediately became fashionable—not only in Britain, but also at the fashion-conscious East Coast American Society. The Christmas tree had arrived.

In Mexico and in the Domincan Republic, the principal holiday adornment is ‘el Nacimiento (Nativity scene)’. However, a decorated Christmas tree may be incorporated in the Nacimiento or set up elsewhere in the home.

Hope you enjoy these photos of our Christmas decoration at Excellence Resorts. Merry Xmas from our family to yours!!!
