The traditional colors of Christmas are pine green, snow white and heart red. Blue and white are often used to represent winter, or sometimes Hanukkah, which occurs almost at the same time. Gold and silver are also very common, as are other metallic colors. Typical images of Christmas decorations include the Infant Jesus, Santa Claus and the star of Bethlehem. Typical winter icons include snowflakes, snowmen, icicles and even penguins and polar bears.
