Product Details
Celebrate your heritage with this great Swedish Customs ornament! Made in Hungary, this 3" round glass ornament features a colorful illustration of a straw goat (Julbock) on the front and is imprinted on the back with the holiday customs of Sweden. Makes a great gift!
The back of the ornament reads:

"Holiday celebrations begin on December 12, St. Lucia's Day. The eldest daughter, dressed in a white robe and wearing a wreath of greens with seven lit candles on her head, awakens her family singing "St. Lucia" while serving them coffee, buns, and cookies. After Christmas Eve dinner, the family gathers around the Christmas tree to open gifts brought by Jultomten (Christmas gnome) who rides the Julbock, a goat made of straw. Christmas Day is reserved for religious observance and rest before holiday socializing begins on December 26. On January 6, Twelfth Night, the caroling Star Boys stroll from house to house. Festivities end on January 13, St. Knut's Day."
