ITEM #: 16092 Heirloom Rooster Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. According to legend the rooster
has only crowed once at midnight.
This was to announce
the birth of the Baby Jesus. For
this reason, Spanish and Latin
American countries call their
midnight mass on Christmas
Eve the "Mass of the Rooster,"
or Misa del Gallo. With bright beautiful colors of red, orange, two-toned blue and green, and a vintage design, this "Heirloom" Rooster glass ornament is a great way to represent the Misa del Gallo on your Christmas tree whether you are of Latin origin or not. This is one of our favorite bird ornaments.
