The twinkling of lights, the rustle of rich red and green fabrics, and the sound of joyful laughter from family and friends say the holiday season is upon us. The annual decorating of the tree brings old and new together with Christmas ornaments. Nothing says Christmas more than a special ornament all your own. Sets come as small as four or as large as 50 or more.
Glass ornaments come as spheres, religious icons, famous cartoon characters and much more. Spheres come in full-size or miniature form in a rainbow of colors. Figurines of angelic wings, comical animals and Christmas scenes of people, love and holiday activities fill the aisles and display trees. Special ornaments make great gifts. Brands such as Ing-glass, Santas by Christopher Radko and tributes by Holiday Lane offer an ornament set for any type of taste or need.
Crystal ornaments given as gifts make for that special gasp of delight when opening the box. Known for their delicate beauty and ability to catch rays of light in the most engaging ways, crystal makes a great heirloom to pass on for generations. Crystals shaped as snowflakes are most lovely; the crystal flakes shimmer as they twirl in the air, making small rainbows everywhere the light touches. Waterford makes many different crystal forms to accommodate those who appreciate beauty and craftsmanship.
Disney character ornaments display charming tales of fantasy and enchantment. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Mickey Mouse and friends, Lightning McQueen and Ariel the mermaid can grace any nook, cranny or Christmas tree. Not only does one get a favorite ornament, but also an ornament set that lends itself to hours of creative play.
Animal ornaments provide a great theme for your Christmas tree as well. Christopher Radko's furry friends pay honor to the domesticated dogs and cats loved and cared for by millions. Martha Stewart's ornament collection captures the wild with lions, zebras and elephants that now inhabit the Christmas tree instead of the savanna. These Christmas ornament sets continue with woodland animals such as foxes, bears and porcupines.
Whether one buys keepsakes each year to add to present collections or changes themes every year and needs Christmas ornament sets to match, you can create the holiday fantasy that happens in dreams and make it a reality at Macy's.
