When the baby Jesus Christ was born in a humble manger in Bethlehem, significant characters witnessed the glorious occasion. Some of these characters were the angels that descended from the heavens to take part in the celebration by singing melodious and magical songs. As this story leads to the beginning of the Christmas tradition, the presence of the angels also became a constant in the yuletide celebrations each December all throughout the centuries. Vintage Christmas angels became part of the decorations that were created during Christmastime. They were made into all sorts of decorative things such as figurines, hanging ornaments, display decors, fabric motif, etc. They are also popular as a Christmas party theme because they are an iconic subject that can be interpreted in many different ways.
