These trees are classified as firs, spruces, pines, and the most popular varieties have been replaced over the years. Evergreens are traditionally decorated with edibles like apples, nuts or dates. From the 18th century, the trees will be decorated with glittering lights, jingle bells, garlands, tinsel, and ornaments. An artificial Christmas tree is also used in the celebration which is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that resemble such a tree.
