The History of Snow Globes
Also known as water globes or snowdomes, snow globes were first spotted in Europe in the late 19th century. Faux snow added a playful touch to glass-domed paperweight, which was popular in the late 1800s. Then, an Austrian surgical instrument manufacturer patented Christmas globes in 1900. It was an accidental invention that came about while experimenting with light bulb brightness. The reflective particles he used in a water-filled glass globe fell like snow. Back then, snow globes usually featured tiny church replicas. Eventually, the designs of holiday snow globes evolved. For instance, modern snow globes feature Santa Claus figurines and holiday village silhouettes.

Enjoy Merry Melodies
Set the ambience with a new musical addition to your Christmas collection. Hum along to your favorite Christmas carols with musical snow globes. Choose from either a traditional wind-up or battery-operated one. Play classic tunes like "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," "Deck the Halls," and "Oh Christmas Tree." Just imagine what fun it would be to have a mini Saint Nicholas dashing through the snow with “Jingle Bells” playing in the background!
