What Are Some Good Resources for Chrismon Patterns?

Resources for Chrismon patterns include WhyChristmas.com and the United Methodist Church Site, at UMCS.org. Both websites offer a number of free downloadable Chrismon patterns as well as explanations of each symbol's meaning within Christianity.

Chrismons are simple, monogram-style designs of traditional Christian symbols that are meant to be decorated and customized. Frances Kipps Spencer of the Ascension Lutheran Church combined "Christ" and "monogram" to create the term "Chrismon." Chrismons are often white and gold to symbolize the purity of Jesus and the majesty of God. Chrismon patterns can be used to create meaningful religious Christmas ornaments and wall decorations. Popular Chrismon patterns include crosses, crowns and fish.
