ITEM #: 40190 Mr. And Mrs. Claus Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. Since Santa Claus evolved from St. Nicholas, a celibate priest, no Mrs. Claus existed in Europe. However, a Mrs. Claus ornament was originally created by German glassblowers who felt she would be appealing to the American public. The family concept took hold, and Mrs. Claus was welcomed into American holiday stories and celebrations. This adorable couple in matching red outfits remind us of family and the love we have for each other (and presents of course).
