After arriving in Bethlehem and finding no room at the inn, the weary couple, Mary and Joseph, spent the night in a stable. Baby Jesus was born and placed in the hay-filled manger instead of a cradle. The brightly shining star announced the blessed event - the first Christmas.
Each figural glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
