A potted history of the lucky bauble and why baubles are lucky

A bauble is not just for Christmas


Long long ago before baubles were meant for the Christmas tree the apprentices used to to take so many years to train before the could actually make anything. 

So when the GAFFER (boss) had gone and the apprentices were left to clear up the hot floor.They used to secretly make baubles. They would put them in the cooling oven (known as a lehr) to cool down slowly over night.

 Glass needs to cool gently because if not it cracks or even explodes, So the next morning they would get in early and juggle the baubles out of the lehr and hide them before the gaffer came in.

The baubles that survived would be thought of as lucky and it was very lucky to hang them in your front window. This was long before Prince Albert introduced them to the British to decorate our Christmas trees. So it is lucky to display a bauble all year round.
