Daily Ideas for Christmas From Your Ancestors - 13 - Exercise Artistic Judgement!

Be Symmetrical !

'Nothing heavy or bulky should be hung on the tree. Quite apart from not looking decorative, they will weigh down the branches and spoil the tree's symmetry... Christmas baubles may be of all shapes, but should be kept of a size for the most part, as small ones mixed with big ones tend to give the tree an unsymmetrical look.' Lancashire Evening Post 22nd December 1938.
