Ceramic Graduation Hat Christmas Ornament
Personalized Christmas Ornament
Dimensions: 4" x 2 1/4"
Named after the hawk that bricklayers used to hold mortar, this mortarboard hat has been used by graduates in the United States since 1950 when they were used for master's degrees. Now the hat is used for bachelor's degrees and undergraduates as half of the cap and gown that are worn when graduates cross that stage and accept their diploma. With the traditional tassel attached to the hat, customs vary depending on the high school, college or university whether the tassel is worn on one side of the hat and then switched to the other side after receipt of their diploma and confirmation that they have officially graduated.

8/19/2016 - "This was my ninth consecutive year ordering from Ornament Shop. Have ALWAYS been happy with ornaments. Both my grandsons comment on each ornament they hang on their Christmas trees each year. And, now I get to start the ornament giving tradition with my new granddaughter. Looking forward to many more years of ornament shopping with Ornament Shop. Martha W."

8/7/2016 - "I'm very impressed with their customer service. I had a question about a particular Christmas ornament that didn't appear to be available in the hair color I needed. I e-mailed the company and got a telephone call almost immediately! The lady on the phone (I'm embarrassed to say, I can't recall her name) was not only extremely courteous and helpful, she solved the problem for me. She also made sure my entire order was sent out in a very timely fashion. Also, like always, the items were packed perfectly. I have ordered from this company for years and never received a damaged (or wrong) item! Hanna H."
