This 3" tall two-tone satin ornament tells the story of the Christmas customs of Lithuania. Crafted of glass exclusively for Bronner's from Hungary, our Lithuanian 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:
To Lithuanians, Christmas Eve is one of the most important family holidays. The highlight of the day is the Kucios, or Christmas Eve dinner. The table is first covered with hay followed by a snow-white tablecloth to remind Lithuanians of Christ's manger. Twelve different kinds of food are served symbolizing the twelve Apostles. Following the meal, adults and children tell fortunes by drawing out of stalks of hay to determine what next year's harvest will be like or what young person's prospect for marriage is in the next year. The Shepherd's Mass, held at midnight or dawn, is attended by the family. Lithuanian Christmas ornaments are made of wheat or white straw, gathered by the women, and fashioned into various designs.
Bronner #1004360.
