Communion Charms

Communion Charms

Charms may be worn (or carried) in a number of ways and serve a number of reasons.  Charms come in many shapes and sizes. 
           
The wearing of charms most likely began in the form of an amulet (talisman or object of intimate relation such as piece of bone) to ward off evil spirits and/ or bad luck.   The ancient Egyptians wore charms as a means of identification or as symbols of faith and luck.  Medieval knights wore charms as protection when they went into battle.  During the Dark Ages charms were also worn to represent family origins, religious or political convictions.
           
Charm bracelets became a fashion trend at the time of Queen Victoria.  After World War II soldiers returned with trinkets made from craftsmen where they fought overseas.  They gave these trinkets to loved ones.  In the 1950's and '60's teenagers collected charms to record special events in their lives.  Since 2000 collectors have sought vintage charms
       
For the First Communicant charms (charm bracelets) are a reminder of the special day he/she received the Lord in the form of the Holy Eucharist.
