MORRIS COUNTY — The Morris County Tourism Bureau creates a holiday ornament annually and this year’s version features the artwork of Thomas Nast, an important 19th century political cartoonist and longtime Morristown resident.

This ornament is not sold in stores, only through the Morris County Tourism Bureau.

This year’s edition is based on Nast’s drawing called “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow, so say we all of us.” This glass ornament features Santa Claus at the piano singing “for He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.” This image appeared in Harper’s Bazaar Magazine – predecessor to Harper’s Bazaar in January 1886 and in other books featuring Nast’s art.

The ornaments are manufactured in the U.S.A. using only American-made materials. Each ornament is $10.00.

To reserve one in time for the holidays, call (973) 631-5151, email the Tourism Bureau at canton@morristourism.org, or visit their website by clicking here.

Because the ornaments are fragile, we request that they be picked up from the Morris County Tourism Bureau, 6 Court Street, during regular office hours.
