Christmas is a time of year that is filled with magic, wonder, and especially nostalgia. For most people, it’s not just a season or holiday, it’s a feeling that is nearly indescribable. The Danish have a perfect word that embodies this feeling, “hygge.” It’s the feeling of warmth and coziness that comes to mind when you think of Christmas, no matter the time of year. A feeling that overcomes you as each year draws to an end and you begin to decorate your home and Christmas tree with bits and baubles while sipping hot cocoa and singing Christmas carols that have been sung for generations.
This feeling of comfort and joy is just what we wanted to evoke with these beautiful Cherished Christmas Moments. Each of the 5 tile scenes shows a special Christmas moment in Victorian times. Take a step back in time and experience a ride on a horse-drawn sleigh on a winter’s day, or look upon the Star of Bethlehem with two Victorian children as they wait for Santa Claus. These tile scenes celebrate the era that gave us so many Christmas traditions that we still practice today. Decorating the tree with tinsel, lights, and bits and baubles, then topping it off with a beautiful tree topper can be attributed to Queen Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert. Christmas carols were a tradition that was revived and made popular by the Victorians, and the Christmas feast of a roast turkey became a staple on the Christmas feast menu. Even that act of gift giving is thanks to the Victorians, who moved the tradition from the start of the New Year to Christmas day!
Decorate your home this Christmas with five delicately detailed tile scenes that will go perfectly alongside your glistening tree, the warm candlelight, and the garland and greenery that decorates mantles and surfaces throughout your home. Each scene would look beautiful placed above a hearth, fixed on a wall in the living room, or above the bed. As the Christmas season draws nearer, fill your home with holiday cheer and that warm hygge feeling, and don’t forget to cherish every moment!
