It’s been a cold Christmas Eve night throughout much of the world and Father Christmas is ready to find some warmth. He tracks through the snow in a quaint village in Europe and gently peaks in the door. Father Christmas discovers a spruce tree beautifully lit with white lights and shiny ornaments hung everywhere. Oh…what a sight to see! As he sneaks in and quietly delivers his goodies he spies a comfy chair next to the glowing, warm fireplace. He takes a few minutes to sit and ponder the beautiful things before him.

Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, Pere Noel or Santa Claus are some of the more common names used to describe a white-bearded, red-cloaked man who delivers presents and cheer. He is a universal figure who appears in many cultures and countries from ancient times.

Father Christmas first appears as a jolly old man as a reaction against the Puritans’ resistance to celebrate Christmas. The 17th century English writer, Ben Johnson, gave 'Sir Christmas' his appearance but it was an American poet who provided Sir Christmas with his long fur-trimmed coat, flowing beard and the sleigh pulled by reindeers. This early 19th century American poet, Clement Clarke Moore, established the modern image of Father Christmas in his poem A Visit from St Nicholas more popularly known as The Night Before Christmas.

Cutest Ornament

Cute Ornament this year!! I ordered 7 and all were received very fast and in good order - thanks to new packaging compared to a couple of years ago where the details were broken off.

Mini Nativity

The Jim Shore Mini Nativity is very pleasing. It is big enough to clearly view all of the characters of the Nativity and small enough to display easily in variety of places in the home at Christmas.

Excellent Transaction

Price was right, Shipping was right on, everything was perfect

2018 Merry Lane Cottages

Very cute little buildings that fit in well with first set. They fit in well with North Pole and suggest where various elves might reside. An excellent addition to the series.
