Watching for Santa through a Christmas Window

The first ornament in Hallmark’s Christmas Window series was a home scene.  Ever since then, we’ve enjoyed how stores decorate their windows for Christmas.  But the series is coming full circle with the eighteenth ornament, released in 2020.

This ornament features a little girl looking through a window.  In fact, she’s pointing at something she’s seen in the sky.  Is that Santa’s sleigh she has spotted?

As always, this is an ornament with stuff on every side.  On one side, we see the front of the window.  We can see the girl and her finger pointing up to the sky.  There’s a bunny out front looking up as well, while a cardinal sits on the roof.  Rounding out the front of the ornament is a small Christmas tree and the address, which just happens to be 2020.

When you turn the ornament around, you get more of the scene inside the house.  The girl is kneeling on a window seat, and we can see the shudders of the window.  Her little stuffed pig is next to her.  There’s a table with cookies and milk left out with a “for Santa” sign next to it.  Finally, we see her slippers, which look like Santa.

Truly, this ornament is extremely cute.  I get why we haven’t had too many houses in this series, but I’m glad we’ve gotten a second one.  This is the kind of ornament that, even if you don’t collect the series, you’d enjoy since it captures that magic of waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve perfectly.

The ornament has a nice, flat base, which isn’t a surprise since the rest of the series does as well.  You can easily set it out with the rest to create a village scene.  The 18 in a Christmas tree series marker is on the bottom.

I had mine on my tree this past month.  I’m happy to report that when you go to hang it, it hangs straight.

2020’s addition to the Christmas Window series is a cute and magical ornament.  I’m glad I have in my collection.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Christmas Window series.
