The original Russian gift-giver was St. Nicholas, the country's Patron Saint whose Feast Day is December 19th. The Slavic version of Santa Claus became Father Frost, the symbol of Russian winter, New Year's Day and gifts. Now he visits Russia on New Year's Eve.
Old World Christmas figural glass ornaments are hand crafted using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds, then a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. They are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of steps to achieve beautiful creations.
