Chrismonstm ornaments were originated and first made for use on the Christmas tree of Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, Virginia, in 1957 by Mrs. Frances Kipps Spencer, a church member.  The tradition continues through workshops and our 20' tree welcoming you to hear the story of Christ as told through these ornaments.
