The most wonderful time of the year is officially here, so you have our full permission to finally deck your halls with boughs of holly — or, you know, whatever you having tucked away in storage. By now, there's a good chance you have your winter decorations down to a science. You have a certain corner for your Christmas tree, know exactly where to place each ornament, and have memorized every seasonal vignette. With holiday decor comes a sense of security; no matter what the past few months threw your way, you know your home will be cozy and cheerful once December rolls around.

But, have you ever wondered where some of your favorite festive staples came from? While you might've had your collection for years, there was once a time when your pieces were not only new, but surprisingly trendy to boot. We know what you're thinking: Popular Christmas decorations sounds like an oxymoron. But, in the design industry, trends come and go in the blink of an eye. So, why would holiday trimmings be any different? 

To help get you in the holiday spirit, we're sharing the biggest Christmas decor items from the year you were born. These trends stretch from 1950s all the way to present day. Whether you want to give your home an old-fashioned flair, indulge in some nostalgia, or simply learn something new, we hope this list gives you a close-up look at Christmas past. Who knows? Maybe the decorations you grew up with will influence your holiday style today.
