Santa Christmas Ornaments
Santa Claus has from time on end occupied a special place in Christmas celebrations. Originally known as St. Nicholas (St. Nick), Santa Claus was born circa 280 A.D. in modern-day Turkey and grew up to become known as a man of great piety and charity, and a protector of children, and by Renaissance became the most popular Saint in Europe.
But it was in early 19th century that St. Nick found his way into popular Christmas celebrations, when members of the New York Historical Society started distributing woodcuts of Santa Claus at the society’s annual meeting, which took place in late December. The innovation was well-received, and from there, Santa Claus started gaining popularity and found his way into Christmas shopping advertisements featured in newspapers and different publications across the country, and also became an important part of Christmas decorations and celebrations in every home and place.
In 1841, the first life-size Santa Claus made his appearance in Philadelphia, and by the end of the 19th century, live Santas had become a common scene in Christmas season, walking around streets, whishing people a merry Christmas and handing out gifts to children. By then Santa, had settled down his spot next to another one of Christmas’s famous ornaments: the Christmas tree.
Presently, Santa Claus has become an inseparable part of everything that’s related to Christmas, and any Christmas decoration is incomplete unless it features one or several depictions of good old jolly St. Nick. So if you don’t see little ornaments of Santa Claus dangling beside those glass and wooden balls hanging from your Christmas tree or standing atop the fireplace mantle, know that you’ve been missing out on one of the most important parts of Christmas celebrations.
That is why we have decided to bring you a totally new line of Santa Claus ornaments, which will help you decorate your Christmas tree and bring joy to the hearts of family and friends. These little decoration pieces can be hung from your Christmas tree or simply set atop your table, window will or mantle to bring the spirit of joy and charity to your home in time for the holidays.
