The official guards of the royal residences in the United Kingdom are a popular attraction for tourists. These guards maintain strict attention and professionalism at all times, even when teased and taunted. Despite popular belief that the guards are purely ceremonial, they are fully operational and highly trained soldiers of the British Army.

About Old World Christmas: Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds available only to the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
