What is a Chrismon?

Chrismons are Christmas Monograms. Decorations used at Christmas time to help to represent and remember that Christmas is the celebration of Jesus's birthday. Traditionally colored white and gold and only handmade, never purchased. White is the liturgical (or Church) color for Christmas and symbolizes that Jesus was pure and perfect. Gold symbolizes His Majesty and Glory. Chrismons can be made from nearly anything, but paper and embroidered ones are the most widely used. The origin of Chrismons on Christmas trees is debated. A few are pictured below.

      The Furca or Upsilon Cross comes from the Greek letter Y. It is also called The Thieves' Cross from the two robbers who were crucified on each side of Jesus. It also symbolizes the choice between good and evil.

The Fish is one of the oldest Christian symbols. The letters, from the Greek word for fish (ichthus), stand for Jesus (I), Christ (X), God (Q), Son (Y), Savior (S). Some of Jesus' disciples were fishermen
