Hang Tag: The Donkey signifies patience, courage, meekness and gentleness. Through a little girl's unselfish gift to Baby Jesus, a bouquet of weeds burst into bright red flowers known as "Flores de Noche Buena" or "Flowers of the Holy Night." Pedro carries the blooms of that favorite flower, the Poinsettia.
Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds available only to the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
