Machine Embroidery Design Cute cat lying on a Christmas ball

Machine Embroidery Design Cute cat lying on a Christmas ball is all kind of hinting that it is time to prepare for the wonderful winter celebration.

Perhaps, it is hard to imagine Christmas and New Year without the sparkling lights, wreaths, stockings, carved snowflakes and, unquestionably, a gorgeous Christmas tree, from top to bottom hung with toys. Glass ball is one of the most common Christmas trappings, and one of the oldest.

In the Middle ages the Church forbade to embellish houses for Christmas, considering this an echo of pagan traditions. Later such an opinion was changed, as it was possible to use old rituals to propagate Christianity. By the 17th century the custom of adorning a Christmas tree for the holidays won the whole of Europe, and the first decorations were very symbolic. On top of a spruce there was “the star of Bethlehem”, its branches were loaded with waffles and biscuits, signifying a festive version of the Church fresh bread and, of course, on each Christmas tree there had to be “forbidden fruits” – apples. So, in those distant times, the tree was to be adorned only with what was edible and tasty.

The first glass ball to replace fresh and glazed apples appeared in Germany in the mid 19th century. These new toys were blown of colored glass and, like snow, sprinkled with glitter outside.

Today Christmas balls can not only be of any color and size, but of any material as well. Especially popular are that made of thin plastic, they are pretty, do not break if dropped and cheap. Such toys are simply irreplaceable, if a family has small children or pets.
