In a broad sense, anything that needs artistic skill and creativity can be counted under art. So then, are Christmas decorations art? It might not come as a surprise, but centuries ago, Christmas ornaments, cribs and cards were considered art forms enjoyed only by the elite who could afford to commission them. Are they still regarded as art? Sadly, the ornaments and artefacts that adorn homes, streets and workplaces during Christmas are considered only decorations and not art today.
