In Norway most everyone has either a spruce or a pine tree in their living room - decorated with white lights, tinsel, Norwegian flags and other ornaments for Christmas.
The children make paper baskets of shiny, colored paper. The baskets can be filled with candy or nuts.Chains made of colored paper are also very popular.
Colored lighting is becoming popular, but the white lights are more like the candles they are supposed to represent.
Christmas trees became common in Norway from around 1900. The custom of having Christmas trees is originally from Germany.
Before the presents are opened, the families often dance in a ring around the Christmas tree while singing traditional Norwegian Christmas carols.
