charming Christmas trees to wear during the Christmas season. It is harder and harder to find decent Christmas jewellery - snowmen and reindeer and santas and penguins seem to be everywhere but have nothing to do with Christmas, and all too frequently are tacky and cheap looking, whereas this pair of earrings says Christmas without trying to hide its message - wonderful

"santas ... have nothing to do with Christmas" and hide it's message!? Since when? Trees, which provide nothing more than a gathering place, say more about Christmas than Santa, the very embodiment of giving?
