Sterling Silver Charm Christmas Story/Legend/Folklore/Tradition
Acorn Charms The Acorn has long been considered a symbol of good luck in Germany where oak trees are considered sacred.  The rebirth of life in the coming of the Christ child is also represented in the acorn.  Bearing a tiny seed that will produce a mighty oak, the acorn reminds us that great results can be born of humble beginnings.
Angel Charms The Angel symbolizes God's care for His people through the presence of His angels.  The presence of angels is mentioned in the Old and New Testaments.  It is written in Psalm 91:11, "For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." (KJV)
Apple Charms The Apple played an important role in traditional European Christmas Eve celebrations.  Following dinner, the head of the family would slice an apple crosswise.  If there was the image of a perfect star inside and the seeds were plump, it was believed that a peaceful year of good fortune and health awaited the family.  Each member of the family then ate a piece of the apple.
Bee Charms The Bee is a symbol of industry, resourcefulness and prosperity.  These tiny creatures show us there is success and satisfaction in working together harmoniously while still enjoying the sweetness of life. British farmers believed the bees hummed in honor of the Christ child on the first Christmas.
Bird's Nest Charms A Bird's Nest is a symbol of the home.  It reminds us that we strive to make our home a place where family members grow and prosper.  Considered a good luck symbol, the bird's nest represents all the love, warmth, enthusiasm and commitment required in creating the happiest of homes.
Butterfly Charms Symbolic of resurrection and eternal life, the Butterfly emerging from its cocoon represents the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the tomb.  Just as the butterfly comes forth with a new body, those who trust in Jesus Christ come forth with new life.  The butterfly also represents flight, freedom and creative thinking.  A symbol of spring, the butterfly truly reflects the beauty of nature.
Candle Charm Before electric Christmas lights were invented, Candles adorned the Christmas tree - sparkling like starlight against the dark green boughs.  The candle reminds us that Christ is the light of the world.  Many European families still decorate their Christmas tree with candles which are burned on Christmas eve.
Candy Cane Charms The Candy Cane begins with a stick of white candy.  The white symbolizes the purity of the Christmas season.  The red stripes are for the blood shed by Jesus Christ on the cross so that we may have eternal life.  The candy cane is formed into a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus.  The shape can also represent the staff of Jesus, The Good Shepherd.  The candy cane's hard consistency represents Jesus, The Solid Rock - foundation of the church, and the firmness of the promises of God.
Cardinal Charms Christened the Christmas bird for its spectacular red color, the Cardinal has become a symbol of the beauty and warmth of the holiday season.  A glimpse of this brilliant bird brings cheer, hope and inspiration on a gray, wintry day.  As nature’s reminder for us to focus on our faith, the cardinal’s scarlet plumage represents the blood of Jesus Christ shed for the redemption of mankind.
Cat Charms An old legend tells of how a Cat came with other wild animals to pay homage to the baby Jesus.  Overcome by the glory of the Lord, a trembling sound came from the cat’s throat.  One by one the other creatures fled back to the wild, but the cat could not bring itself to leave.  Since then...the cat has been a household companion, never forgetting its wild nature, but content in the comforts of a warm house.
Celtic Cross Charms Most prevalent in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, the Celtic Cross is a symbol of both faith and ethnic heritage.  The circle symbolizes eternity and the endlessness of God's love for man.  Legend says that while preaching to the lost, St. Patrick was shown a sacred stone marked with a circle that was symbolic of a moon goddess.  He made the mark of a Latin cross through the circle and blessed the stone, making the first Celtic Cross.
Chili Pepper Charms The Chili Pepper is a southwestern American tradition symbolizing warmth and friendship.  Clusters of vibrantly colored chili peppers (called chili ristras) add a zesty flair to home décor during the holidays.  When hung near the door, chili peppers ensure a bountiful harvest and when placed in the kitchen, they bring good luck in cooking.
Chimney Sweep Charm The hearth is considered the center, or the heart, of the home.  Since a chimney sweep exclusively deals with the heart of the home, it is good luck for anyone to be touched by him - especially if he leaves you with a black smidge of soot.
Christian Fish Charms The letters of the Greek word for fish, Ichthus (), are the first letters of the Greek phrase for “Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior.”  Accordingly, people use a fish symbol to distinguish themselves as Christians.  Just as fish are born in water, Christians publicly show their choice to follow Jesus by baptism with water.  Jesus wishes all of us to be “fishers of men.”
Christmas Bell Charms

More Bell/Bells Charms

According to early legend, Bells rang throughout the world announcing the birth of Christ.  The ringing of bells during the joyous holiday season still adds a delightful accompaniment to favorite carols and is a significant part of the Christmas celebration.  High in their towers, suspended between heaven and earth, church bells have called the faithful to worship for centuries.
Christmas Gift/Present Charms The tradition of gift-giving seems to have started with the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh the three wise men (the Magi) brought to Baby Jesus recorded in the Bible.
Christmas Stocking Charms A father was unable to provide his three daughters with a dowry.  Hearing of their misfortune and wishing to help, St. Nicholas dropped three bags of gold coins down the chimney.  The coins fell into each of the daughters’ stockings, which were hanging by the fire to dry, providing a sufficient dowry.  Since then, stockings hung by the fireplace are a traditional part of Christmas gift giving.
Christmas Tree Charms Because it stays green all through the year, the evergreen tree is symbolic of the eternal life offered to Christians through faith in Jesus Christ.  The treetop points heavenward.  A star signifies the special star which guided the wise men to Bethlehem.  Lights represent Christ, the “Light of the World.”  Gifts beneath the tree are representative of God’s gift of His only begotten Son, who brings Hope, Love, Joy and Peace.
Christmas Wreath Charms

Wreath Charms

The Christmas Wreath has decorated many front doors with fresh greenery.  Wreaths are often made of evergreens.  Because they are green and bear fruit in the winter when other plants appear lifeless and bare, evergreens signify God’s immortality and everlasting life.  The wreath’s circular shape reminds us of the circles of life, family and love.
Cow Charms Regarded in some cultures as a symbol of status and bartered as currency, Cows have been invaluable to humans over the years.  Its production of milk also makes the cow a symbol of gentle nourishment, motherhood, and prosperity.  Cows have come to represent our connection to the land and are a sign of the bounty with which we are provided.
Cross Charms To Christians, the Cross symbolizes faith and salvation.  Christians were granted the gift of eternal life in Heaven when Jesus Christ was crucified on the Cross for the sins of mankind.  While Christ suffered pain and death on the Cross, this divine and humbling symbol helps us to be mindful of our beliefs and duties as Christians.  Faith in the Cross of Christ helps us cope with the burden of the crosses we bear.
Dolphin Charms Because of their intelligence and playful ways, Dolphins are one of earth's most fascinating creatures.  Romans, Greek and Celtic stories feature their amazing ability to communicate with each other and tell miraculous tales of dolphins rescuing drowning humans.  Because of this friendliness to man, dolphins represent the peace, harmony and tranquility that can be achieved in life.
Donkey Charms Legend says the Donkey that carried Jesus Christ into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday  followed Him to Calvary.  Appalled by the sight of Jesus on the cross, the donkey turned away but could not leave.  It is said that the shadow of the cross fell upon the shoulders and back of the donkey.  A cross marking is found on many donkeys today and remains a testimony of the love and devotion of one humble little donkey toward his Creator.
Dove Charms A universal symbol of peace and love, the dove has long held significance for man.  Noah sent forth from the ark a dove that returned with an olive branch, indicating the end of the flood and the beginning of God’s new covenant with man.  The dove also symbolizes the Holy Spirit.  The dove also signifies marriage and lifelong love.  The pristine whiteness of the dove represents purity, hope for peace and the forgiveness we obtain from God.
Drummer Boy Charms Come, they told him, to see the newborn King.  The Little Drummer Boy had no gift to bring, so he played his drum for the holy child.  The Christ child smiled at the simple gift, reminding us that the best gifts come from the heart.
Elephant Charms The familiar phrase, “an elephant never forgets,” refers to the animal’s alleged intelligence, memory and longevity.  The peaceful elephant is also a symbol of gentle and reposing strength.  The social nature of elephants allows us to view their amazing sensitivity to their group and family members, helping each other when hurt and protecting the newborn.  Elephants even mourn the loss of their loved ones.
Heart Charms The Heart has been a symbol of love for many centuries. Throughout pre-Christian and early Christian eras, the Heart was believed to be the center of emotion.  During the Baroque ear, the Heart was recognized as a sign of sincerity and devotion.
Holly Charms Legend has it that the bright red and green of Holly make it a natural symbol of rebirth.  There are several legends regarding holly.  According to one of these legends, holly branches were woven into Christ's crown of thorns - the once white berries were stained red by the blood of Jesus Christ.  Holly has also come to stand for peace and joy.
Lighthouse Charms The Lighthouse is a source of inspiration.  It is a reminder of the light keeper's legacy of courage and self-sacrifice for the welfare of others.  The lighthouse also serves as a symbol of Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
Mistletoe Charms Mistletoe was for many centuries a symbol of healing and divine love.  In Scandinavia, mistletoe was considered a plant of peace.  When hung in a doorway or from the ceiling it became a sign of goodwill and harmony.  The current custom of kissing beneath the mistletoe is based on Scandinavian mythology.
Mushroom Charms Mushrooms are considered to be a good luck symbol.  Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, finding a mushroom is considered to be very lucky and to mean good fortune is at hand.  Mushroom ornaments are displayed on Christmas trees in Germany in honor of a reverence for nature and hope for good luck in the New Year.
Nativity Charms The true meaning of Christmas!

"Behold, a virgin shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." Matthew 1:23
Owl Charms Throughout history, wise Owls have been credited with providing forewarning and good counsel.  The owl’s thoughtful and solemn appearance has generated their association with wisdom and virtue.  Comparisons have been made between the owl’s visual ability to pierce the darkness and the light of Jesus Christ dissolving the darkness of the world.
Peanut Charms The Peanut is a symbol of the mystery and anticipation of the Christmas season.  Just as a peanut's shell is opened to discover a hidden nut inside, the Christmas season unfolds with its many wonderful surprises.  In years past, family members would gather and make handmade decorations for the tree - peanuts wrapped in gold and silver foil were used as Christmas tree ornaments.
Pickle Charms Legend has it the Pickle brings good luck and was the last ornament placed on the Christmas tree.  On Christmas morning, the first child to find the gherkin was rewarded with an extra little gift left by St. Nicholas.  This tradition encouraged the children to appreciate all the ornaments on the tree, rather than hurrying to see what St. Nick had left for them.
Pig Charms According to German tradition, partaking of a roast pork dinner on Christmas Eve will prevent evil and promote prosperity in the new year.  Germans have a saying, “wir haben Schwein” which means “we have good luck”.  Pigs are considered to be symbols of good fortune, thrift, and savings.  Children are traditionally given piggy banks to encourage them to save.
Pineapple Charms The Pineapple is a traditional American symbol of hospitality.  During Colonial times, sea captains arriving home brought back the tropical fruit from exotic locations - as a sign of their safe return and to welcome guests, they placed a pineapple on their gate or door.  In time, people began to carve pineapple designs into their doorways and gateposts.  Today, pineapples are still given as a symbol of welcome or friendship.
Pinecone Charms Pinecones symbolize eternity.  Because of their abundance in the forest, they were often used as natural Christmas decorations.
Poinsettia Charms Mexican legend tells of a boy who had no gift to put by the figure of baby Jesus in Church on Christmas Eve.  On his way to church, he heard an angel tell him to pluck some dried weeds for his gift.  As he laid them beside the other gifts, the weeds turned into beautiful flowers.  Dr. Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. ambassador to Mexico, brought the plant to the United States where it was named “poinsettia”.
Rainbow Charms Resembling a giant gate or bridge, the rainbow has been called by some the "Gateway to Heaven."  The Old Testament tells how God placed a rainbow in the sky following the great flood as a promise that He would never destroy the earth by flood again...therefore, the rainbow has become a symbol of reconciliation between God and man.
Robin Charms Legend says the night Christ was born, a little brown bird shared the stable with the Holy Family.  During the night Joseph built a fire to keep the family warm, but as they slept the fire burned out.  From its nest, the bird flew down and fanned the embers with its wings.  The bird was very close to the fire and the heat turned the bird’s feathers red.  The breast of the Robin has been red ever since to remind us of its love and compassion for baby Jesus.
Rooster Charms Legend states the only time the rooster crowed at midnight was the night Jesus was born.  In Spanish and Latin American countries “Misa del Gallo,” the Mass of the Rooster, is celebrated at midnight on Christmas Eve.  The crowning of the rooster at the dawn of each morning symbolizes the daily triumph of light over darkness and the victory of good over evil.
Rose Charms Legend has it that Rose ornaments on a Christmas tree are symbolic of beauty and are believed to be an expression of affection and love.  Legend tells us that a lowly shepherdess knelt at the manger, weeping because she had no gift to offer the newborn King.  As her tears fell to earth, a rosebush sprang into bloom.  She picked a bouquet of roses and offered them to baby Jesus as her gift of love.
Saint Nicolas/Santa Claus Charms The concept of the American Santa Claus originated with St. Nicholas, who was born in Asia Minor in 280 A.D.  He was known as a kind, benevolent man; indeed made a saint because of his generosity.  In honor of St. Nicholas, December 6 became the traditional day in Europe for the exchange of Christmas gifts and the beginning of the holiday season.  Dutch immigrants to the United States brought with them their version of the gift-giving St. Nicholas, known as Sinter Klass.  Americans, unaccustomed to the Dutch pronunciation, turned this into “Santa Claus”, who is beloved as a symbol of Christmas by children of all ages.
Sand Dollar Charms The markings on the shell of the Sand Dollar symbolize the Birth, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ.  On the top side of the shell, an outline of the Easter Lily appears.  At the center of the lily is a five pointed star representing the Star of Bethlehem.  The five narrow openings symbolize the four nail holes and the spear wound made in the body of Jesus Christ during the Crucifixion.  Turn a sand dollar over - you can see the outline of the Christmas Poinsettia and also a bell.  When broken, inside the shell are five “doves of peace” - some say they are the angels that sang to shepherds on the first Christmas morning.
Santa's Reindeer Charms

Each Christmas season we hear the stories of the eight tiny flying reindeer that pull Santa's sleigh all over the world in one night - the source of this legend is probably from Clement Clarke Moore's early 19th century poem "'Twas the Night Before Christmas".

Reindeer are sturdy, short-legged animals.  They have a brownish coat that is dark in the summer and light in winter; the long hairs under the neck, the fur just above the hoofs, and the region about the tail are almost white.  They have large spreading hoofs that enable them to travel on snow-covered areas.  They have been trained to wear harnesses because of their strength, speed, and endurance in pulling sleds over snow.

Perhaps most significantly, "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" created in 1939 by Montgomery Ward department store in Chicago, set to music and recorded in 1949 by Gene Autry.  Rudolph then became an annual television star and a familiar Christmas image.
Seashell Charms The seashell (or carocol) played an important part in early Mexico's religious symbolism.  The seashell symbolized birth and life, thus coming to symbolize Christian rebirth.
Snowman Charms

Snowflake Charms

For centuries, children have gleefully awaited the winter’s first snowfall.  Rolling large balls of that fluffy gift from heaven, they delight in making their own special companion.  Completed with a carrot for a nose, coal for the eyes and mouth, and sticks for arms, the snowman truly does come to life for the children who create their frosty friend.
Spider Charms Legend has it that a poor woman was unable to provide traditional decorations for the Christmas holiday.  A Spider, who had narrowly escaped the dust mop, made his home in her tree and began to spin beautiful webs.  On Christmas morning, the first light of sun struck the cobwebs, turning them to silver.  When the woman awoke, she found the tree covered with the silver treasure - the spider had brought good fortune!
Star Charms The Star symbolizes the great light that led the wise men to the Christ child so many years ago.  Throughout much of the world, the Christian holiday begins with the appearance of the first star on Christmas Eve.  The star also symbolizes hope for peace and good fortune.
Sunflower Charms At one time, the Sunflower was considered to be a symbol of adoration, possibly because it follows the path of the sun as it travels across the sky.  The yellow petals of the sunflower imitate the sun's rays and the heart-shaped leaves on the strong stalk help to absorb the sun's light.  The sunflower is the perfect example for us to follow the Son of Man and to grow in His love and presence.
Unicorn Charms The mythical Unicorn has long been a source of enchantment.  Solitary, swift and graceful - the unicorn had a single spiraling horn growing from its forehead.  According to legend, the unicorn disregarded Noah's call to board the ark - preferring to frolic in the rains of the flood.  Ever since, unicorns have only existed in our imagination.
Yule Log Charms An ancient tradition originating in Europe, a Yule log warmed the house during the cold Christmas night.  It was ceremoniously brought to the fireplace and lit with the remnants of the log from the previous year to erase trouble from the past and bring good fortune and protection from fire.  Today, the Yule log takes the form of a traditional French cake shaped like a log - a perfect finish to a Christmas feast.
