Checkmate! This shield shaped ornament depicts the black and white squares of a chessboard and three chess pieces. The white chess pieces shown are the knight, king and bishop. Chess enthusiasts study the game and learn the methods of sacrificing pieces to attack and win the game that has been around since the 6th century. This game is popular all over the world and before the internet, people often played games by mail, posting one move at a time, anxiously waiting for the post office to deliver their opponent's position. Chess tournaments are still played even though computers have replaced the need for an opposing player, and a computer even beat a chess world champion in 1997!

12/7/2016 - "I saw this Giant Panda ornament on 'Bao and Bei' friends discussion website and loved it. Came to your website three times before I found how, where on your site the Panda ornament was. I found it by doing the Search: Panda. There's been much discussion in this website about this ornament and I intend to use it as a 'Christmas door ornament' on my senior apartment door as the senior residents here know my love of this panda family.

11/30/2016 - "The best part of Christmas, for my family, is receiving an ornament from Santa. Typically those ornaments must be purchased online as they represent something fun from that year or give a kiddo a sneak peak into something yet to come. This year my daughter had a rough patch with some kids who felt they needed to tell her the whole Christmas season was fake. It broke her heart. Out at dinner one evening we were seated close to a man who clearly resembled Santa. My daughter left to visit the restroom and I quickly explained her situation to the man. Both he and his wife were holiday Claus's and called my daughter to them (by her name) and spoke to her. I wasn't supposed to hear their conversation but "Santa" told my daughter that it does not matter what other kids believe as long as she still did. He said, "If you believe, I can feel it! I am going to put a gift under the tree this year that proves I'm real! A peanut butter and jelly sandwich!" I of course will get that sandwhich under the tree but I felt her ornament should reflect that spirit and joy I saw on her face during that discussion. This site had multiple designs to pick from and the quality looks like what I aim for. Lindsey K."

6/27/2016 - "Thank you for your wonderful ornaments. We love giving them every year to the families and they look so forward to putting them on their trees.
