What is the Significance of a Bird's Nest at Christmas?

Christmas is full of symbolism, the bird's nest in a tree is a symbol of luck in the home. This legend has been traced to Iceland, Sweden, and Germany. Legend has it that prosperity will come to any home that finds a bird's nest nestled among the branches of the family Christmas tree they bring home. The many varied versions of the legend include bringing health, happiness, fortune, and good luck to the family. Nests are for keeping eggs and chicks in place, being a home for new life. A bird's nest is manually made by the parent birds to give their expecting eggs a safe place, so having one in your tree symbolizes the effort, love, and commitment it takes to build a happy home. This symbolizes and reminds us that we want to make our home a place where family members grow. Browse our bird's nest decorations online now!
