The most important Ornament for the Christmas Tree
Here’s a simple but meaningful way to “put Christ back into Christmas”! Along with focusing less on the materialistic aspects of the Christmas shopping season and focusing more on spiritually preparing during the season of Advent for the birth of Christ on Christmas night, we can hang this simple Manger Nativity Ornament prominently on the Christmas tree!
The Reason for the Season
This simple yet elegant pewter Christmas ornament serves as a reminder that the humble birth of this little baby is the real reason for the season. It’s hard to convey the delicate beauty of this little ornament in photographs. It’s made of openwork pewter, and is 1.5 inches long and 1 inch wide–though small, it’s “monumental”: depicting the birth of a little babe in a backwater province of the Roman Empire, a babe who is the very Incarnation of the Logos – the Word of God made flesh in human history!
A Christmas Ornament of Heirloom Quality
This ornament depicts with simplicity and grace the essential aspects of the most Holy Night of Christmas: the baby Jesus lying in the manger, Mary the Theotokos (the mother of God), and Joseph – foster father, protector, and provider. The Christmas Star blazes overhead – a celestial sign that the New Age of the Messiah has dawned. This is indeed an ornament of heirloom quality which will grace the family Christmas tree for generation after generation.
