Did you know? - The miner from the Ore Mountains and the Angel of Light ..

Did you know? – The miner from the Ore Mountains and the Angel of Light ..
…did not become a couple until the 19th century. The miner and the associated images are much older.
These already existed in churches in the 16th century. Altar candles were often „carried“ by miners made of pewter.
Due to his dangerous work in the dark underground and his long working days, the miner has always had a close relationship with light.
For him it became a symbol of faith, happiness and life. In the middle of the 19th century, Christmas became a festival of lights.
The miner was accompanied by the Angel of Light, which symbolised the Annunciation Angel.
Even today there is the custom in many Ore Mountains families to give an angel to the girls for their first Christmas and a miner to the boys. This then usually accompanies them throughout their lives.
During Christmastime, angels and miners are placed on windowsills. This shows passersby how many boys and girls live in a family.
We, the team of BWH Bohrwerkzeuge Hoffmann, wish you a wonderful Christmas season.
Look back on the past, look forward to new beginnings and make sure to look after yourself and your loved ones.

Have a merry Christmas!
