Owls are very hot for Christmas decor this year. That’s right, not eagles, doves or swans, but the carnivore that hunts the night for fresh meat. Sure, I thought, and then I went shopping.
Christmas trees are littered with the swivel-headed, big-eyed bird ornaments. Most of them are the snowy owl variety which I can understand somewhat—they are a rather dramatic looking white creature.
Perhaps it’s a result of Harry Potter’s magical snowy owl Hedwig. Who am I kidding? This must be the explanation for the abundance of these hooters.
The ornaments here are from (in order of appearance), Cannon Falls, Smith & Hawken, Plow & Hearth, Heliotrope, the Squirrel Store, Target, Kurt Adler and Christmas Forever. The adorable Christmas stocking is from the Tweet Baby Design’s Etsy shop.
