The Merck Family’s Old World Christmas is one of the leading distributors of the world’s best-loved collections of mouth-blown figural glass ornaments. Ladybugs received their name centuries ago in Europe. When farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help against aphids ruining their crops, their prayers were answered by the arrival of thousands of beetles. The bugs were named to honor Mary, “Our Lady,” and so they were called Ladybugs.
