Historical Christmas Trees

Visiting the Ronald Reagan Library at my recent tour to California we entered a room with decorated Christmas trees. At first, I thought it had to do with White House Christmas trees but it appeared that they each symbolized a decade of the U.S. history. The Christmas tree was invented around the 1840s in Germany  I love history and found it very interesting, had a closer look at them. The Reagan Libray is situated one hours’ drive from Oxnard high on a hill near the ranch president Reagan owned.
