Poland Christmas Custom Ornament
Item # 1000596
This 3" tall two-tone satin ornament tells the story of the Christmas customs of Poland. Crafted of glass exclusively for Bronner's from Hungary, our Polish 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:
The Star of Bethlehem is the most popular Christmas symbol. Christmas is known as Gwiazda, or "Little Star." The first star in the Christmas Eve sky signals the end of a day-long fast of Wigilia, and celebrations begin. Before the Christmas Eve meal is served, the head of the house distributes an oplatki (peace wafer) symbolizing friendship and peace. A straw-sewn place setting is reserved for the humble Christ. Decorations include an elaborate crèche and choinka (Christmas tree) decorated with straw stars, fruit, nuts, cookies and intricately painted eggs. Often, young men carry a lighted star on a pole en route to Pasterka (Shepherd's Mass) at midnight Christmas Eve.

"With just 21 days before Christmas I ordered 2 Polish baubles through Bronner's family business. Surprisingly it was received in time for Christmas. ( I really did not expect to receive it in time for Christmas because of the international travel time required.) The item was in perfect condition and I was delighted to give to my 79 year old Polish mother. She really liked the Polish greeting A big thank you to Bronners" for such a top quality product and excellent customer service"
