|Holiday snowglobes on Review This!|
At this time of year, snowglobes always come to my mind. They are a wonderful part of holiday decorations. Because holiday snowglobes are offered in such a wide variety of styles they can also be very thoughtful gifts. Each one individualized to reflect special interests of the giver or the receiver. Snowglobes range from the tiny plastic trinkets that you can find at just about any souvenir gift shop to high-quality pieces of seasonal art that can be enjoyed and passed down for generations.
Santa Claus Snowglobes
This review came to mind after recently purchasing a beautiful snowglobe depicting Santa's workshop. There was a piece of synchronicity that led me to thoughts of how special snowglobes can be.
Scenes with Santa are my favorite snowglobes. And there are MANY Santa scenes to choose from:
- Seated in his workshop with the elves, making toys.
- Flying in his sleigh through the snowy sky.
- Dressed in his suit with the huge bag of toys slung over his shoulder.
- Seated with a child seated on his knee

Some snowglobes come with a music box option. Typically, the music box key is under the base of the snow globe. Simply turn the globe over, turn the key a few times, then place the snowglobe on the table to watch the snow and listen to the tune.
Tunes that are as familiar as Jingle Bells and as traditional as Oh Holy Night can be found with some snowglobes.

A variety of religious scenes are depicted in snowglobes. From angels to the nativity scenes (simple and ornate) a snowglobe reminding us of the "reason for the season" can be found.

Snowglobes and Nature Scenes
In the areas of the world that have four seasons and the possibility of snow during the holidays, snowy naturescapes are reminiscent of Christmas. Trees drop their leaves and make unique silhouettes against the sky. Native backyard birds are easier to see against the white background of snow. Polar bears, penguins, and white hares are wildlife that are often associated with a winter wonderland.

Snowglobes with Favorite Movies, Places, Things
Perhaps your family has made a tradition of watching the Nutcracker during the holidays. Or watching the Wizard of Oz has become an annual event as the holidays approach.
Maybe you've traveled during the holidays and want a reminder of those special places.
Whatever your holiday traditions include, chances are good that there is a snowglobe that gives a shout out to those special memories.

Whether you are looking for long-lasting holiday decorations or a special gift for that special someone, snowglobes are a great choice.
My love of snowglobes was recently renewed during an incident of coincidence. Or maybe it wasn't coincidence at all. I'm not completely sure. If you would like to read about how I came to own my most recent Santa Claus snowglobe you can read about it on my personal blog.
