Not everyone will have an opportunity to see large and/or rare animals in their natural habitat however, the next best thing is to visit a Zoo. When at the Zoo you have the opportunity to see exotic, endangered, and other rare animals up close. Old World Christmas can help you remember those moments with our extensive collection of Zoo Christmas ornaments.
This adorable creature is hardly playing possum as she snuggles a beautiful blossom. Opossums are well-known for their involuntary behavior of mimicking the look and smell of a dead animal when they feel threatened. Opossums are also unique for using their tail as a fifth limb as they climb, hang and balance.View Product

Why is Christmas on December 25th?
The most wonderful time of the year will be upon us in no time. Even though we might still be deflating the pool floaties and stashing away the sunscreen collection, we detect a slight shift to cooler morning temperatures indicating that a change is right around the corner. Christmas is a bright light in the middle of a dark, cold winter, but why is Christmas on December 25th? What happened on that day and why does it get celebrated by so many?
