Happy Birthday Jesus Ornaments

by Jimmie

Decorate your Christmas tree with ornaments that tell the real reason for the holy day -- the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ.

It might be a cliche, but Jesus is the reason for the season!

The very word Christmas comes from "Mass of Christ," when the birth of Jesus was remembered and honored. Although modern Christmas celebrations are often devoid of that sacred signifigance, the original meaning of Christmas is essentially the birthday of Jesus.

Keep the focus on Jesus with Happy Birthday, Jesus Christmas ornaments for your Christmas tree.

Ceramic Happy Birthday Jesus Christmas Ornament

Cheerful and Fun

This ornament features a modern take on a traditional Christmas ornament shape. Bold colors and dotted ribbon add to the appeal of a simple font saying, "Happy Birthday Jesus."

A twisted silver wire adorned with colorful beads forms the hanger.

This ornament is both quirky & fun. But it is reverent at the same time. 

The Candy Cane's Signifigance

Again -- It's Jesus

There are many stories about the tradition of candy canes at Christmas time. But it is generally held that the shape of the candy cane represents a shepherd's staff. Remember that shepherds were watching their flocks the night Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Angels appeared to them and told them to go see the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes. The shepherds did find Jesus and worship him.

This lovely red ornament wishes Jesus a happy birthday on one side while recounting the tradition of the candy cane on the back.

Simple Disc Ornaments

These simple ornaments are flat discs to adorn your Christmas tree. Their simple appearance hides a deep truth -- Christmas is Jesus' birthday! Give honor to Jesus with these ornaments from Zazzle.

Luke 2:11 Ornament

Luke 2:11 says (in the NIV) "Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." That captures the essense of Christmas -- recognition of Jesus as Savior.

This gorgeous ceramic ornament reminds us of the meaning of the holiday -- literally "holy day" -- with whimsical text on a white background. Red and gree embellishments finish off the simple style of this special decoration.

Nativity Ornaments That Celebrate Jesus' Birthday

The ornaments and ornament sets below honor Christ's birthday with scenes from the nativity. Whether you prefer a more whimsical style or a more realistic style, the selections below are clear about the reason for Christmas -- Jesus' birth in a lowly manger over 2000 years ago.

Although the wise men came to visit the child Jesus a few years later, not the infant Jesus, they are often portrayed along with Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds at the manger scene. Don't allow that inconsistency to turn you away from these nativity ornaments. The magi did come and present gifts to Jesus. Putting them at the manger simply abbreviates the narrative into a single scene that is easy to portray.
