With winter comes a tradition of joy, and the Gentle Cardinal Ornament is a beautiful embodiment of this holiday cheer. This 4.25-inch glass tree ornament from Old World Christmas brings not just beauty but also a story to your Christmas tree.

Cardinals, with their brilliant red plumage, are a natural beacon of happiness and joy, making them a sought-after symbol during the holiday season. This glass ornament captures the cardinal's vibrant essence, with shades of red and orange that blend seamlessly, mimicking the bird's natural grace. The glitter accents highlight its wings, adding a hint of sparkle that catches the light, ensuring this cardinal stands out among the branches of your Christmas tree.

The tradition of including birds on the Christmas tree has deep roots. Glassblowers would be accompanied by the melodic songs of wild birds during the winter months, as the birds were attracted to the warmth of the flames in the workshops. These birds, which symbolized good cheer, were believed to bring song and celebration to the long, silent winters. When spring arrived, these companions were released back into the wild, a symbol of freedom and the cycle of nature.

This Gentle Cardinal Ornament is a nod to that tradition, a piece of history, and a token of nature's beauty that you can bring into your home. It is more than just a decoration; it is a celebration of life's joyous songs during the coldest and most special time of the year. Adorn your tree with this exquisite piece and let the Gentle Cardinal Ornament be a reminder of the joyful moments and the natural splendor that the holiday season can bring to your home.

Text on Old World hang tag: Birds are symbols of happiness and joy, so they are regarded as a necessity on the Christmas tree. Glassblowers often kept wild birds during the winter months since the sound of the gas flame in the workshop prompted the birds to sing. Then when spring arrived, the birds returned to freedom.
