The Christmas Cardinal

Updated on November 23, 2016

Beautiful Christmas Cardinal

There is a reason to decorate with the Christmas Cardinal

The Christmas Cardinal has a very special significance and that is the reason that you can find so many ornaments, decorations and gifts.

It is said that the Christmas Cardinal became known as the Christmas Bird because of the brilliant red color in the male species. I have heard that hanging a red cardinal in your Christmas Tree would bring good luck to you and your family throughout the coming year. I also remember reading that the Christmas Cardinal is a symbol of hope and that the bright red color symbolizes the blood that Christ shed for our sins. The Legend of The Red Christmas Cardinal is that it's brilliant red color is a reminder for us to focus on our faith. All I know for sure is that the Red Christmas Cardinal looks beautiful on my Christmas Tree.

Our Stepmother used to decorate her tree in nothing but clear lights and cardinals. She had handmade many of the Christmas Cardinals and then some were special gifts that she had treasured over the years. She always said that the Cardinal would bring peace and joy into your home if you had one on your tree. I sure don't want to take any chances so I have several cardinals on my Christmas Tree. In fact, after Christmas I continue to use my cardinals but placing them in planters on the porch. Why not?

I have selected some of my favorite Christmas Cardinal Ornaments, Cards and Gifts to feature on this page and I hope you will find one that you would like to purchase for a gift or for your very own tree.

Beautiful Cardinal Ornament on a crystal prism with mistletoe. I think I would be tempted to leave this one out all year hanging in a window.

This ornament has everything - crystal prism, green mistletoe and a beautiful red cardinal to bring good luck to your home. I would love to have this Christmas Bird ornament on my Christmas Tree.

 

Birds for Your Christmas Tree

My mother always had birds for our Christmas Tree and my step mother did, too, so it isn't anything new and is very meaningful. I remember my mom saying to make sure that all the birds are facing the door or windows so they can fly out if they want. I still do that and always laugh at myself when I remember my mom saying that. Well, you just never know, do you?

Christmas Cardinal Ornament on Branch with Acorns

It's amazing what the addition of a cardinal can do for your Christmas Tree. Try it! The Christmas Cardinal is also known as the Christmas Bird.

Add this elegant touch to your Christmas Tree this year! This collectible ornament looks so peaceful and would enhance any tree. I have never collected Hallmark ornaments but this one makes me want to start. It would be fun to have a nice collection to hand down to the next generation.

 

More than One Cardinal on your Tree?

A visitor commented that she had several cardinals on her Christmas Tree. I wondered if you would have more good luck, the more cardinals you have. Hmmmm. I may have to have a tree with just cardinals like my step mother did.

Baldwin Red Bird Ornament

Our Little Tree

I used to put this little tree in my office at home but decided to put it up at my husband's office and we certainly have enjoyed it. I call it my Nature Tree because it is filled with birds, birdhouses, bird feeders and other animals even a Groundhog.

I did a tribute page for my husband, Doc Hellams. We closed the office at the end of December, 2013 so probably won't put our little tree up again. Maybe I will use it at home. We have always had a huge live tree but another little one will be nice.

      We don't have cardinals where I live, alive or as decoration. When I was living in the USA for a short time back in the late 1960s I just loved to see these red birds in the gardens. They're beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

      One year when I was a kid, we got our Christmas tree home from the tree farm and found a real bird nest in it. Every since then I've had a love for all bird ornaments! Cardiinals are especially lovely against the green of the tree.

      My dear mother was very fond of cardinals. Because my sisters and I loved are mother so very much, we are also very fond of cardinals. Over the last few years, I have purchased many different cardinals for decorating my Christmas tree. Two years ago, I finally had enough ornaments to totally decorate our tree, in white lights and cardinals. I had some berries and bead garland to add some color and dimension to our tree. It is a tribute to my dear friend, my mother. Merry Christmas everyone!
