Beautiful Ornament for an Old-Fashioned Christmas Tree


Ever have a picture just jump right out at you? That's what happened when this Baby Jesus Nativity Ornament caught my eye. The ornament itself isn't vintage; it's brand new. But the old-fashioned artwork is straight out of the books I learned to read from back in the 1950s and 1960s.

I know that I'm admitting my age, but I think I'm not the only baby boomer who would love to have this ornament for her Christmas tree. There's just something sentimental about a picture that evokes memories of happier times, those days of youth and innocence that passed us by so long ago.

The Nativity scene is classic and includes Mary and Joseph gazing down at baby Jesus. Even the cow whose hay manger is being used to house the newborn babe is in the picture, amazed at the miraculous events.

The little boy and girl in the foreground are dressed in 1940s or 1950s style and I think the figure on the right is an angel, or perhaps another little girl who is dressed for her role as angel in her church's Christmas Eve program.

The ornament itself is porcelain, printed with the same picture front and back, hanging from a gold cord. It weighs an ounce and a half (sturdy but not too heavy) and measures about three and a third inches high and two and a third inches wide. Reviews are "excellent" and the ornament is guaranteed so if there's a problem, it's easy to send it back.

I've witnessed similar manger scenes played out dozens of times during my lifetime and the story never gets old. That's why I know I would never tire of hanging this beautiful nativity ornament on my old-fashioned Christmas tree.

How about you?

    1. That's a great idea, Dawn Rae. Choose something special about your year and choose an ornament to help you remember, or just pick one that you love it when you see it!
