Style is always changing - whether you are throwing away your last year's sweater because it is hideous now or finding the home decor horrendous. On the other hand, something from twenty or so years ago is now comfortably back in fashion. And while in some instances trends change faster than seasons do, other times a vintage style might stay forever. Though you might've never thought about it, even Christmas trees aren't impervious to the trends around us.

The Christmas tree surely becomes the center of attention during the festive season, but there are a lot more things that can illuminate the Christmas spirit for the joyous occasion. And this is true for both contemporary Christmas decoration ideas and the ones used in the past. And while you're probably somewhat familiar with the first, you most likely don't know as much about the vintage Christmas decorations. Compiled by Bored Panda, these unique vintage photos of Christmas home decorations from the 1950s-60s will definitely change that!
