This 3" tall two-tone satin ornament tells the story of the Christmas customs of USA. Crafted of glass exclusively for Bronner's from Hungary, our United States of America 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:
Although many of the varied customs were brought by immigrants, American innovations include popcorn garland, candy canes, colored electric lights and a jolly bearded Santa Claus in a sleigh with reindeer. Streets, parks and malls are decorated and often include a Nativity scene. The national Christmas tree is lit annually on the White House lawn, while decorated trees prevail in communities, homes, businesses and churches. Holiday activities include shopping, decorating, caroling and concerts. Lumanaries light the way for the Christ child. On December 24 and 25 families attend church, enjoy turkey dinners and open gifts placed under the tree.
