This Donkey Ornament from Old World Christmas is a sparkling symbol of humility and service, carrying the tale of a legendary ride into your festive home. At 3.5 inches of glass artistry, it's bedecked in glitter and texture, representing the patient and gentle spirit of this beloved creature.

Embellished with a reminder of the cross, as told in Christian lore, this donkey brings with it a message of meekness and the honor of being chosen as a steed for a sacred journey. The tale goes that following Palm Sunday, every donkey was graced with the sign of the cross on their coat, marking their humble contribution to a pivotal moment in history.

This ornament is a celebration of those qualities that the donkey embodies: steadfastness in the face of burden, unwavering courage, and a gentle demeanor. It's a tribute not just to the animal itself, but to the virtues that can inspire us all, especially during the holiday season.

Adorned with sparkling details that catch the light, this donkey is a reminder of service and a marker of stories passed down through generations. It's perfect for those who appreciate the deeper meanings woven into holiday traditions or anyone who has a soft spot for the underappreciated heroes of both legend and reality.

Let this Donkey Ornament trot onto your tree this year, adding a touch of glittering history among the branches, and maybe even spark a conversation about the virtues it stands for, making it a meaningful addition to your holiday decor.

Text on Old World hang tag: The Donkey signifies patience, courage, meekness and gentleness. According to Christian legends, donkeys originally had unmarked hides, but after Palm Sunday, when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a kind donkey, they all received the mark of the cross on their back as a reminder of their service.
