A stunning display of holiday decorations greets guests at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando theme parks. It is the season to be jolly, and the parks convey the holiday spirit with bounteous decor—and plenty of Christmas merchandise.
Holiday snacks and seasonal desserts are tempting, but nothing says Christmas better than the beautiful ornaments available everywhere.
The First Christmas Ornaments
The origin of the modern-day glass ornament is believed to date back to mid-16th-century Germany. The first Christmas trees, however, were decorated with apples and candy.
The first American-made glass ornaments were created in New York in 1870, and the now well-known Hallmark ornaments came to the market in 1973.
