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.

11/17/2016 - "I buy ornaments from you every year. 20 or so years ago I started a game with family members. This game was started because the little ones we had at the time were ripping into presents much too fast. I would put an ornament that reminded me and them of themselves. There was no name on the package. We would have someone hold the package and walk around the room showing everyone the ornament on the package. Whoever thought it was them could say I think it is me. If no one claimed it they went around a second time and the others could guess who it belonged to. Now the packages are put around the tree and as everyone comes in they try to figure out who the ornaments belong to. Everyone has a great time with this game. That is why I never get names on them just the year. Jorja L"

They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful! I highly recommend them and I will definitely order from them in the future!! Thanks again soooo much!! Suzanne K."

11/25/2016 - "Thank you!! This is the first time that I have shopped at your site. I have a tradition of buying family ornaments for numerous years. Last year my dear sister died and I wanted to do something special at this Christmas. My usual store did not offer what I was looking for, so I went on line and found your place. I am so happy with your ornaments. My family will be very touch by the "Ginny" ornament and the family ornament will be so special. I will definitely keep you in mind for all my future shopping. Love the suggestion of gifts throughout the year. Thank you, Mary"
