This 3" tall two-tone satin ornament tells the story of the Christmas customs of Scotland. Crafted of glass exclusively for Bronner's from Hungary, our Scottish Christmas custom ornament is sure to be a fun and enlightening conversation piece for years to come!
Customon the back of the ornament reads:
In Scotland religious services and quiet family gatherings dominate the celebration of Christ's birth. Hogmanay, New Year's Eve, is a time of joyous revelry. At midnight, church bells ring as people join hands and sing "Auld Lang Syne" in remembrance of friends past and present. The first person to cross the threshold after midnight is called the first-footer, and traditionally brings gifts of coal, bread, money, or salt to ensure warmth, food, and wealth for the coming year. The Scottish wisely believe that the year is best begun this way: rise early, pay your debts and borrow no more, dine well, and cheerfully resolve to work hard.
