An ornament and light on my parents' Christmas Tree.
Ah, the magic mushroom. This was a new addition this year, courtesy of Leslie. It came with the following explanatory tag: Authentic German ornament. Besides the horseshoe and the clover, the mushroom is one of the most popular German symbols of good luck. You can find it on greeting cards as well as in illustrated fairy tale books. If someone gives their friends or family a mushroom ornament for their Christmas tree as a present, they are wishing them with much luck (sic) in their profession and in love. The tag also says the ornament is mouth blown and handpainted. I think it is very charming... glad you took its picture. KMH @ 2009-12-29 14:45:25
