This 3" tall two-tone satin ornament tells the story of the Christmas customs of Australia. Crafted of glass exclusively for Bronner's from Hungary, our Australian 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:
In Australia, many celebrate the birth of Christ with attendance at midnight mass. Christmas falls in the middle of Australia's summer, ushering in the summer holidays for students and providing families the opportunity to get together to exchange greetings and presents. Australians enjoy a Christmas Eve tradition, Carols by Candlelight, begun in 1937. These gatherings allow Australians to sing their favorite Christmas songs together by candlelight. A traditional Christmas dinner includes a Christmas plum pudding for dessert. In Australian gold rush days Christmas puddings often hid a gold nugget, and small favors are still baked inside these puddings today.
