ITEM #: 26054 Batty Bat Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. Black as night, this funny, round faced bat ornament smiles wide, and his ears and wings are trimmed with purple glitter. Since bats live in caves, which
were seen as the entrance to
the nether world, they were
thought to be immortal. Western
belief associates the bat with
Vampires, undead spirits who
suck the blood of the living.
However, in China, the bat is a
symbol of long life, happiness
and many blessings.
