First private Christmas tree in Bulgaria was decorated by Stefan Stambolov (1854 - 1895) in 1879, Todorka Nedeva, employee of the Regional Museum of History in Veliko Tarnovo, said, speaking for Radio FOCUS – Veliko Tarnovo.
Stambolov was Bulgarian prime minister from 1887 to 1894.
He decorated the Christmas tree with garlands, glass balls, and shiny toys during a personal reception of his in Sofia.
Each guest took a toy home after the reception ended as a memento.
Despite Stefan Stambolov’s innovation in this respect, home Christmas trees became largely part of the daily life of people in the old Bulgarian capital of Veliko Tarnovo in the 1920s, Todorka Nedeva explained.

Proto-Orchid: @ussrstrong: I blame general low activity on social medias, all the people sit there today

reznik: @proto-Orchid: very true. What's worse, is that the system is designed specifically to keep those people dormant in their echo chambers. Nothing new to learn for them there, just stupid cat videos and such. Sad.

Proto-Orchid: Its the substitute for going out, meeting and spending your time with friends in real life. Its just part of the story. When I was younger I remember people were meeting to play team sports, but today you see completely autistic people jogging with iPhone.

Proto-Orchid: Then they come back home, put pictures on Instagram or Facebook to show off how they spent their time jogging, and as mental satisfaction they get few likes or hearts, or whatever social medias have today, which is a measure of how good their life is. Sick
