It might not be a “traditional” Christmas ornament … but it certainly shares the spirit of Christmas 2019.
Soffieria De Carlini and Thomas Glenn Holidays Debut 2019 designs at AmericasMart in Atlanta
|My sister, Benita Giacherio, and niece, Brenna Giacherio, have joined the Celebrate365.com team. The three of us traveled to Atlanta’s AmericasMart in January. Workshop head Luca Terruzzi greeted us at the Soffieria De Carlini showroom.|
The extended De Carlini family has been designing free blown ornaments in northern Italy since 1947. The showroom is a fantasyland of fairy tales, popular characters and haute couture models from Milan’s nearby fashion houses.

The Krampus Tradition …
If you are a child in southern Germany or Austria, when St.
Nicholas rides through your village on the evening of December 5, he does not arrive alone. Krampus is his scary companion.
The Krampus, a terrifying horned figure wearing chains and carrying switches, runs behind him. It’s his job to scare children into being “good.”
The Soffieria De Carlini Krampus ornament depicts a classic German orAustrian Krampus clad in black with a scary red face, horns and elongated tongue. And, don’t miss that tail. He is truly a frightening character … as bad as St. Nicholas is saintly!
Soffieria De Carlini has been a family-operated glass blowning working shop since 1947. Located near Milan, the De Carlinis are the last workshop in Italy still producing these whimsical free blown holiday ornaments.
