According to legend the rooster has only crowed once at midnight. This was to announce the birth of the Baby Jesus. For this reason, Spanish and Latin American countries call their midnight mass on Christmas Eve the "Mass of the Rooster," or Misa del Gallo.
The details: Each ornament is made the old fashion way using molten glass mouth-blown into carved molds. Then, a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside the mold. Next, they are each hand painted.
