The Essential Ornament for the Family Christmas Tree
Here’s a great way to “put Christ back into Christmas”: While striving to focus more on spiritual preparation during Advent and Christmas, and less on the materialism and stress of the holiday shopping season, you might also hang this beautiful, miniature Forested Nativity Ornament in a prominent place on the family Christmas tree as a reminder of the real reason for the season. The beauty of this tiny piece is difficult to convey in photographs.
The Nativity – The Real “Reason for the Season”
The Forested Nativity Ornament depicts the humble birth of a small, vulnerable baby in a backwater province of the mighty Roman Empire in openwork pewter that is 2 inches long and 2 inches inches wide. It’s hard to convey the delicate beauty of this little ornament in photographs. It’s small, but it’s monumental: we see the birth of a little baby–2,000 years ago in very humble circumstances–who is nevertheless the very Word of God made flesh–the Incarnation of the eternal Logos in our history!
An Ornament of Heirloom Quality with Alpine Flair
On this ornament we contemplate the babe lying in the manger, Mary looking on in rapt adoration, and the watchful Joseph of Nazareth–provider, protector, and foster father of the baby Jesus. The Christmas Star blazes a path overhead against a starry sky, a celestial portent of the Age of the Messiah. The whole scene is framed with a little alpine flair by majestic evergreen trees. The Forested Nativity Ornament is of authentic heirloom quality and will grace the Christmas tree for generations to come.
