Nixie on the moon is featured on the 2018 Silver-Plated Biedermann Ornament. According to Biedermann, "Nixie is a German sprite or pixie. Elves in folklore may have begun with Belsnickel (also known as Persnickel) from the portion of Germany called Palatinate, along the Southwestern border, which is not far from where Biedermann ornaments are handmade! Belsnickel was a companion figure to Santa Claus or St. Nicholas. There's obviously a bit of magic at play in her reports to Santa Claus. She is described as a human dressed in furs, and served a "scouting role" checking to see which of the little boys and girls had been naughty and nice. Belsnickel shows up at houses one or two weeks before Christmas, and always determines exactly which of the children misbehaved. The boys and girls must be good so Santa will bring them presents on Christmas." Limited edition ornament No. 49. Handmade in Germany.
Please note, orders placed after December 19th may not arrive before Christmas.
