This beautiful, Christmas arch is a charming example of the traditional German Christmas candle holder called a Schwibbogen. This Christmas Schwibbogen uses battery powered led lights which are convenient and provide a warm back light for the design. It features a wood grain colored arch design above a square platform. The arch is lined with white snowcapped evergreen trees with traditionally styled German houses behind them in the snowy background. The platform features a village scene with a back drop of the night sky with a crescent moon, snowcapped houses and a large snow covered Christmas tree. In front of this back drop a green painted tree and a wood grain colored light post sit at each corner of the village and an arch shaped bridge sits in the center. This winter scene is made complete with snowflake and star decorative accents and four Christmas reveler figures who are skiing, sledding, making snowballs and singing Christmas carols while dressed in colorful scarfs and winter attire. The Schwibbogen is a time honored Christmas tradition in Germany, we invite you to make it a part of your family’s tradition as well!
