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!
