Hallmark Ornaments Make Their Debut for 2012

A Christmas tree is an iconic part of the holidays, and many families delight in passing ornaments down from one generation to the next while creating memories together with these special collectibles.  For many, ornament collecting is an integral part of the Christmas celebration, and Hallmark ornaments are some of the best-known and most coveted collectible ornaments available.

Each year, new Hallmark ornaments are released for a limited time; once they’re gone, these collectibles are no longer produced.  Ornaments become available in July and many newly-released collectibles are part of a series continued from previous years.  This allows avid collectors to obtain all of the parts of a single series if they wish.

The 2012 Hallmark ornaments include new additions to existing series as well as brand-new ornaments on a variety of themes.  There are 50 ornaments altogether in the 2012 Hallmark ornament collection.  Among them are several rare collector’s editions with a limited release, including the commemorative Kansas City event Hallmark ornament and  the specialty San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) Hallmark ornament.

Hallmark ornament collectors will appreciate the wide variety of ornaments available.  Themes range from pop culture icons like Tom and Jerry, Tinkerbell, Iron Man, and Captain America to classical designs like peace doves, snowflakes, and angel messengers.  Other ornaments include animal-based designs, themed ornaments based on age, career or family status, and photo frame ornaments.

The prices for the 2012 Hallmark ornaments vary and some are rarer than others.  The priciest ornament on the 2012 Hallmark ornament list thus far is the San Diego Comic Convention 4-LOM and Zuckuss Star Wars Hallmark ornament; a very rare ornament that was limited to only 1,000 units produced!   Prices vary depending on rarity, with special event and limited edition Hallmark ornaments costing the most.

Whether a collector simply wants to add a single Hallmark ornament each year or plans to purchase an entire set of Hallmark ornaments, there’s a wide selection of ornaments available to appeal to people of all tastes.  A wide collection of themes ensure that collectors will find something of interest to them, and there are ornaments at multiple price points to ensure that no collector is unable to participate.

You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out, Kid!

While you probably didn’t find yourself sporting pink bunny pajamas on Christmas morning, we can still appreciate Aunt Clara’s effort to turn Ralphie into a Christmas morning Easter bunny in the 1983 American holiday classic, A Christmas Story.

Where else than from this legendary film could we have learned that one’s tongue can actually freeze to a flagpole? Or that it might be extremely offensive to substitute “l’s” with “r’s” when replicating an Asian accent? If anything, we know now that all it takes is the ultimate “triple dog dare” from a couple scheming friends and you might just shoot your eye out.

Only 40 minutes from our location (OK, 30 for those of us who are considered a “lead foot”) stands the legendary home where the Old Man’s awarded lamp, shaped like a woman’s leg wearing a fishnet stocking, shines in the front window for all its visitors. That’s why we here at The Ornament Factory think it would be swell to provide you with a little piece of the action for your very own home from our A Christmas Story Hallmark ornament collection.

Remember when we learned that saying, “ Oh…fudge” sometimes just doesn’t get the point across as … nicely as we’d like? Well, we captured Ralphie’s very own slip of the tongue, too. Since 2006, we’ve been selling these special Hallmark ornaments like the well known leg-shaped lamp you see to your right, and of course our ornament featuring Ralphie’s ridiculous pink bunny suit, seen below.

Hanging on your already beautifully decorated Christmas tree, these ornaments add just an extra pinch of life and daily chuckles as you share these scenes with generations after you and those still to come. The legendary leg lamp is “A Major Award” anyway, right? It just makes sense to have a little piece of the prize on your own tree.

As the 2011 holiday season comes to an end, remember that your tree could always use some new garnishing in years to come, so go ahead and treat yourself with a classic holiday Hallmark ornament that’s bound to get your family and friends talking, remembering and laughing … we triple dog dare ya!
