A Christmas decoration is any of several types of ornamentation used at christmastime and the greater holiday seasons. The traditional colors of Christmas are pine green, snow white, and heart red. Blue and white are often used to represent winter, or sometimes hanukkah, which occurs around the same time. Gold and silver are also very common, as are other metallic colours. Typical images on Christmas decorations include Baby Jesus, Father christmas, santa calus, and the star of bethelehem. Typical winter icons include snowflakes, snowme, icicles, and even penguins and polar bears.
