This 3" tall two-tone satin ornament tells the story of the Christmas customs of England. Crafted of glass exclusively for Bronner's from Hungary, our English Christmas custom ornament is sure to be a fun and enlightening conversation piece for years to come!
Custom on the back of the ornament reads:
The custom of sending Christmas cards originated in England, a nation rich in varied traditions. Window candles attract carolers, called waits, who fill the air with Christmas music. A yule log finds its place of tradition in the hearths of some homes in England and Wales. Children hang stockings by the chimney of their bed, hoping Father Christmas will bring them gifts. Before the use of the Christmas tree, the main decoration was the kissing bough, made of evergreens, holly, and ivy. Christmas feasting includes the wassail bowl and flaming plum pudding. On Boxing Day, December 26 (St. Stephan's Day), gift boxes and alms are distributed to the needy.
