Need some fancy Christmas balls?
Tired of those old, boring balls in your Christmas tree? Hurry, visit Meisenthal (northwest of Strasbourg) in the Vosges region. Meisenthal is the French national Center of glass art
Of course, you may visit a museum dedicated to the old craft of glass blowers. Of course, there's a large collection of fine glass art-productions. But important for now: each year before Christmas, they design and blow a new series of Christmas balls. Well, eh, the shape may not exactly be a ball, but you can hang them in your tree.
If the shape really is a ball, don't be confused. France 3 discovered some balls that looked exactly like petanque-balls. However, you're supposed not to throw them.
