Do you love to throw caution to the wind, shun a theme, and simply chuck a bit of everything on your Christmas tree? People who love mismatched and colorful ornaments love to make everything their own, say the experts. They don't care about following trends or doing things just like everyone else — they want to express themselves through their decorating choices and make sure everything looks exactly the way they want it to.

If your tree has simplistic, Scandi-esque ornaments, then you’re a minimalist who doesn’t like clutter in the home. You prefer to keep things simple and clean. You're practical and realistic, with little time for frivolities in life. You prefer simple decorations because they're easy and inexpensive - not because they're boring!

Lots of tinsel

Tinsel is one of the most common types of Christmas tree decorations because it's inexpensive, easy to use, and adds color to any tree. Tinsel is a classic Christmas decoration, it’s shiny and colorful, but it also has a slightly tacky quality that makes it quite fun to use. If you have a lot of tinsel on your tree, then you’re someone who likes to have fun and isn’t afraid of being a little flashy every now and again.

Handmade decorations

Candy canes are a classic Christmas decoration, and they’re also representative of the holiday spirit in general. If you have them on your tree, then it means that not only do you enjoy the holidays, but you take joy in making others happy as well. They’re fun and festive, but also remind you to enjoy life as they show off your sense of humour. 

Snowflake theme

If you have a snowflake theme on your tree, you love to decorate your home with greenery and twinkling lights. You're also a hopeless romantic who loves to watch Christmas movies, listen to Christmas music, and make memories with friends and family.

High shine

Sparkly, shiny baubles are a staple of a holiday tree. If your tree is covered in them, you're probably an optimist at heart and believe in the power of positive thinking. You’re also likely to be a person who likes to shine bright and be the centre of attention, whilst having everyone look at you (and your tree)! 

Glass baubles

If your tree is covered in glass balls, then you’re definitely an optimist. You see the best in everything and everyone around you. If you love the sound they make when they chime against the tree, then this also shows that you appreciate the small things in life.

Angels are all about goodness and kindness – qualities that are very important to you too. You are a very spiritual person who can sometimes be quite sensitive and emotional. However, this doesn’t mean that you fall apart at the drop of a hat, you just have a strong sense of right and wrong and want everyone to be happy!
