Pax ChrismonChristmas decorations come in all shapes and sizes! In 1957, Frances Kipps Spencer wanted the Christmas Tree in her church to be decorated in a way that reflected the Christian faith, and so she began developing Christmas ornaments which incorporated Christian symbols. The term Chrismon is a combination of Christ and Monogram.

Chrismons are usually made in the Christmas colours of Gold and white. The links on this page will give tell you how you can make Chrismons for your Christmas celebrations.
