This 3" tall two-tone satin ornament tells the story of the Christmas customs of Germany. Crafted of glass exclusively for Bronner's from Hungary, our German 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:
Celebrations begin before December 6 with pageants and fairs featuring cookies, breads, sausages, decorations and toys. Many observe Christ's coming by lighting candles on an Advent wreath or opening Advent calendar windows. Decorating the Tannenbaum originated in Germany. On Heiligabend (Christmas Eve) families enjoy decorating the tree with white candles and ornaments of wood, foil, and glass. A Krippe (nativity set) is placed under the tree. Children receive gifts from the Christkind (Christ Child). The season ends with Epiphany, when the Sternsänger carol and roam the streets with star-shaped lanterns symbolizing the Wise Men from the East.
