Ladybugs Around Red Glass Ornament
Have you ever wondered how "ladybugs" acquired their unusual name? According to European folklore, when aphids invaded vineyards many years ago, farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help. After a swarm of the little red beetles appeared to eat the aphids and save the crops, the farmers named the insects "ladybugs in" Honor of Mary, Our Lady. Symbolizing good luck, this unique ladybug ornament depicts a band of the delightfully spotted insects inching their way all around a vibrant red glass surface. Artfully crafted in Hungary exclusively for Bronner's, this cheerful 3" round keepsake is sure to brighten your tree for many years to come!

Tradition Of The Candy Cane
The candy cane begins with a stick of white candy. The white symbolizes the purity of the Christmas season. Its hard consistency represents the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church and the firmness of the promises of God. The candy is formed into a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus. It can also represent the staff of the Good Shepherd with which He reaches the lambs who have gone astray. One large red stripe is for the blood shed by Christ on the cross, so that we may have eternal life.

Bring this tradition home today with this Bronner's exclusive ornament! With a stunning red satin finish, this charming ornament has the tradition of the candy cane printed in white along the back of the ornament and "Happy Birthday JESUS" across the front.
