Himmeli is an ancient Nordic decoration. Tradition has come to Finland through Sweden, and the name Himmeli refers to the Swedish word for sky or heaven, himmel. These heavenly ornaments, being more than Christmas ornaments, were in the old days put up to secure good luck and abundant crop. The structure of a himmeli – especially a bigger and more complex one – is visually striking, with geometrical shapes made out of hundreds, or even thousands, of pieces of straw.
