What's the Significance of a Bird's Nest at Christmas?

Birds Nest

Bird's have always been a symbol of good luck and good fortune. Because of this, there was a belief stemming from Iceland or Germany that a bird's nest would also bring good luck. Finding a bird's nest in the tree that a family brought inside their home for Christmas was a sign of good luck and health throughout the year.

Nowadays, you wouldn't want to bring home a tree with a birds nest in it, and you know that your artificial tree definitely will be without a nest, but that doesn't mean we should forget about the tradition! Birds, eggs and nest ornaments are a common decoration option, and a great way to symbolize the bird's nest tradition. Add a little bit of luck to your tree this year with a bird's nest decoration!
