The bird brings happiness and joy.

Legend card: "The Bird... Ornaments depicting birds have long been a favorite of the Mueller-Blech family.  These beautiful creatures motivated generations of Mueller-Blechs as they created glass ornaments in the family workshops.  During the cold winter months in Germany, glassblowers often kept birds in cages to offer them shelter.  These birds gave craftsmen companionship and inspiration for creating new ornament moulds.  Birds are symbols of joy and happiness, especially during Christmas.  In Germany, it is believed that birds assist Santa inwatching the actions of little ones to ensure they are good."  - Inge-Glas
