On a winter afternoon, Philip walks the dogs in the yard, family has gathered for dinner, and the house is decorated with holiday cheer. From the window, sunset shines through a crystal Christmas ornament that has captured a delicate cut paper tree in the Round. This intricate art form is called scherenshnitte (scissor cuts), a 16th century Swiss and German tradition that arrived in America with immigrants in the 18th century. Merry Christmas!
