A Christmas cardinal ornament has become a must-have for American Christmas trees. The cardinal has become increasingly associated with the Christmas holiday. If you attempt to research why, you will find reasons ranging from its lovely red color that stands out in the dreary winter weather and landscape to reasons associated with the blood of Christ. A non-Christmas legend about the red cardinal that we enjoy is that they represent a loved one who has passed away. When you see the bold colored bird, it means that the loved one is visiting you. It's a lovely thought to associate with a lovely bird. No matter the reason for it, cardinals are popular figures in Christmas decor these days. What better way to share in their beauty than to hang an environmentally friendly Christmas cardinal ornament on your tree!
