Inge-Glas ornaments of Germany have been making blown-glass Christmas ornaments by hand since 1596. Santa Frost, pictured below, was the 2013 Annual Dated Ornament and decorated with a Swarovski Crystal. Traditionally, Santa Claus represents unselfishness and goodwill. The magical man is based on a melting pot of customs and cultures from the world over. St. Nicholaus, a fourth century, kind and benevolent monk, legendary for his compassion and charity was the most influential figure in shaping the image of Santa Claus.

In the late 1500s in Lauscha, Germany, the Müller family of glassblowers worked diligently to produce mouth blown glassware of the highest quality for their countrymen and later for others all over the world to enjoy. Beginning in the 1860s, the Müller family specifically customized their craft for creating Christmas ornaments. As generations followed, each would take great care to share their expertise with the next. So join in a tradition stretching back literally as far as the idea of glass ornaments.
