If there is one word to describe Christmas perfectly, it is joy. Christmas is a celebration of joy, love, and all things beautiful. Hence all things of beauty and grace need to be celebrated graciously. As the most authentic expression of joy, Christmas brings a lot of beauty into our lives. One way of expressing such inner beauty brought by Christmas is to celebrate it by decorating houses in the most elegant manner possible. Christmas snow globes are elegant and expressive decoratives that carry a small world inside them. There are many snow globe varieties, each with its exquisite beauty.
Glass vs. polycarbonate snow globes
One of the most common varieties in which snow globes are available in glass. Glass is rigid, sturdy, durable, and lasts for many years without a crack. Most of the standard Christmas snow globes are made of glass. However, one of the most significant drawbacks of glass snow globes is their easy breakability. When the glass globe is thrown down by mistake, the globe easily breaks, and all its contents are let loose outside. Polycarbonate plastic globes have become extremely popular because it is highly durable and more than 200 times stronger than glass.
Christmas globe sizes
Christmas snow globes are available in a wide variety of sizes. The sizes range from extra small to extra large, with the larger balls being almost the regular football size. Snow globe size consideration is purely an aesthetic choice since snow globes do not offer any practical function. Hence, size choice depends on personal preferences and the amount of space available on the shelves or desks. While smaller snow globes are used in homes on the desks, the larger snowballs are typically used in a more public setting, like a restaurant or a bar.
Designer snow globes
Fortunately, the sphere is not the only shape in which Christmas snow globes are available. Various designer snow globes exist that are fashioned into the most creative shapes and designs. The scope for creativity over here is virtually unlimited. Other than a spherical snow globe, lantern-shaped snow globes are the most popular. Lantern-shape varieties are shaped like a traditional middle-ages lantern. Some more higher-end snow lanterns come with an attached light bulb that lights up, giving an aesthetic effect. Personalized snow globes also exist in which personal photos can be inserted.
Water vs. glycerin snow globes
The liquid inside the snow globe is of two types, water, and glycerin. Water snow globes are the cheapest snow globes. However, one significant disadvantage of water snow globes is that the carving inside the snow globe wears off in color quicker. Glycerin keeps the inner walls and the carvings of the snow globe preserved and intact for many years.
