The Festive Farmhouse
Included with the pictured ornament is a commemorative card that reads:
The tradition of the teacher's apple began in the late 1700's. Before teaching was a paid position, families would show their appreciation by sending their most valuable, sought after fruit, because they recognized the value of a teacher.
And so do we.
Just as the apple seed needs nurturing and care to become a fruit-bearing tree, so do our children. Thank you for loving them, teaching them, and helping them grow.
Ornament Size: 2.5" x 4" and comes packaged with card inside a cloth gift bag.
