No matter how you spell it, we carry the original cuckoo clocks from Germany!
If you are interested in finding out a little bit more about cuckoos and their clocks, read on!
The cuckoo is a medium-sized bird. It comes in many species which can be found all over the world. The cuckoo has to put up with a bad rap – it is accused of laying its eggs in the nests of other species and have them do the hard work. For some cuckoo species that is indeed true, but the majority of cuckoos do raise their own young.
In Europe, the cuckoo is associated with spring, in India the cuckoos are sacred to Kamadeva, the god of longing, whereas in Japan the cuckoo symbolizes unrequited love. In Greek mythology, god Zeus transformed himself into a cuckoo for goddess Hera, to whom the cuckoo was sacred. Last, but not least, Sonny the Cuckoo Bird has been the mascot for a certain cereal since the 1960s😊.
If you want to see the cuckoos in action, come and visit our store in beautiful Peddler’s Village in Lahaska, Pennsylvania or click here. You might just leave coocoo for cuckoos 😉…
