Silver was the first tinsel used for decorating. As a result, it was a relatively exclusive adornment that the upper class used on their sculptures. Tinsel was first used on Christmas trees in the 17th century to enhance the effect of candlelight. It was still considered an upper-class decoration until the industrial revolution made it more affordable and accessible to the general public. They couldn’t get enough of the glittery decoration back then, and it’s still a popular holiday decoration today.
To put it another way, the tinsel we use today has come a long way. Why not add to the evolution of your favorite Christmas accessory by reading some witty tinsel jokes?
