From Old World Christmas. Horns are an important part of an old-fashioned Christmas. According to legend, loud noises frightened evil spirits away during the cold winter solstice, so festivals with noisemaking were popular. In the 19th century, bands of horn-players paraded through streets banishing all sorrow and welcoming Christmas. This classic glass Alto Horn ornament has all the intricate loops and bends of the brass instrument, as well as its beautiful gold sheen and silver valves and mouthpiece.
