Sand Dollar Ornament by Old World Christmas

$9.99

Sand Dollars are named because they are round like a dollar coin, but most people don’t see gold or silver dollar coins very often anymore. Finding a whole sand dollar on the beach is rare, too.

This beautiful glass ornament comes in a special gift box.

Description
















The Sand Dollar is actually a live sea creature (like a starfish) and lives on the sand bars a little way out from the beach and it’s crashing waves. If you find a live one, please, gently return it to the sand bar where it can live happily. The live ones are brown or kinda pink and feel soft with fuzzy hairs on their underside, but the dead ones are hard like a shell. They burrow in the sand to find their food.

Sand Dollars are named because they are round like a dollar coin, but most people don’t see gold or silver dollar coins very often anymore. Finding a whole sand dollar on the beach is rare, too.

Sand dollars have lots of parts to them that remind people of Jesus. They have what looks like a star inside a poinsettia on one side which reminds us of Christmas! (That is my favorite part!!!) On their other side, they have what some people think looks like an Easter lily, but I can’t find it on our ornament. They, also, have five holes (also, not on our ornament) that remind us of the wounds on Jesus in his hands, feet, and chest when he died. If you break a sand dollar, you will find five small, white pieces inside that look like doves. This reminds us that even though Jesus died and the sand dollar died, there is new life and peace. Just like a dove flies far and wide sharing its beauty and a reminder of peace, we should spread peace and goodwill wherever we go.

So, go! Have fun this summer! In fact, seize this summer to spread peace to everyone!

Old World Christmas is the premier brand of Christmas ornaments in the country. The founders, Tim and Beth Merck, a couple who shared a special love for Christmas, are credited with revitalizing the art of mouth-blown fine glass ornaments as a result of their reintroducing figural designs to the United States in 1979.

Today, Old World Christmas offers the most extensive and best-loved collection with over 1,400 proprietary designs in styles ranging from traditional to whimsical. Our vast selection of finely crafted and affordable ornaments offers many choices to fit your personality or style.

Each figural glass ornament produced by 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 made exclusively for 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.
