The first in my line of John the Baptist Christmas ornaments. The idea came about when my priest pointed out the lack of John the Baptist Christmas cards even though JTB is often the subject of Advent Gospel readings. Father pointed out that John the Baptist didn’t quite fit the typical Christmas sentiment.
“What would the card say, ‘Merry Christmas you brood of vipers!’?”
The idea just tickled me! So I ran with it and have produced a couple of ornaments to put the John the Baptist back in Advent.
It’s a little art print of my John the Baptist painting affixed to a thin, pretty piece of Red Oak with the sentiment, “Merry Christmas you brood of vipers!” underneath it. The ornament has a matte varnish.
