There are many additional Christmas decorations that can draw lucky omens in addition to the caganer, the recognizable figure in Catalan nativity scenes and a symbol of prosperity and good luck. If you want to follow this tradition, then maybe you should fill your home with them to start the new year feeling completely revived.
WREATH FOR CHRISTMAS TO START THE HOLIDAYS RIGHT
One of the main lucky Christmas decorations is the advent wreath. His presence makes Christmas more inviting. Its circular shape, which is filled with Christian symbolism, stands for God’s unending, eternal love. Additionally, the fact that they are created from evergreen leaves stands for endless life. It can be displayed in the living room windows, behind the seats in the dining room, or hung on the front door.
THE BEST GUIDE ARE THE STARS
According to the legend, a star led the three wise men to the manger where Jesus was born. The star, which is connected to a celebration and hopeful thinking, represents faith and is another lucky decoration. Pick them out in vibrant colors to decorate various areas of your home, such as the fireplace’s opening.
THE CHRISTMAS SOCKS BRING GOOD LUCK AND PROSPERITY
The fireplace has been embellished by interior designer Asun Antó with a pair of hanging socks in addition to the brilliant stars. Legend has it that San Nicolás de Bari heard of a very impoverished man who had no dowry for his daughters’ marriage. He stealthily entered his home and placed some gold coins in some socks that were drying on the fireplace. Since then, as a sign of success and prosperity, gifts from Santa Claus have been placed within them.
REINDEER IS A GOOD OMEN FOR DECOR
The reindeer is the animal most closely associated with Christmas. It stands for power, contentment within, rebirth, the desire to protect, and loyalty. Therefore, using them in our decorations can only be beneficial for us. Choose them in ornamental tree figures or in patterned cushions, as shown in the example.
JOYFUL PERENNIAL GARLANDS
Our use of garlands to decorate our home is a cause for joy and celebration. If you choose a natural model for Christmas that is made of evergreen leaves, you will bring nature and positive energy into your house. It can be used to make a lovely round Christmas centerpiece, to hang over the fireplace, to be laid lengthwise on a rectangular table, etc.
