The first Christmas Tree came to England with the Georgian Kings who came from Germany. At the same time,German Merchants living in England decorated their homes with Christmas Trees. The British people were not found of the German Monarchy, did not copy the fashions at Court, which is why the Christmas Tree did not establish in Britain at this time. Although, a few British families did have Christmas Trees, probably more from influence of their German neighbours than from the Royal Court.

That is very interesting, it is funny how you don't think of how things actually got started, we all just take things for granted as always being there.
