In 1981, Jette Frölich made her first characteristic paper cuttings for Holmegaard’s Christmas Bottle. Now, four decades later, Holmegaard’s Christmas collection has become a tradition and treasured collector’s item for many Christmas fans. This year, her reflections on the magic of Christmas have resulted in a beautifully illustrated Christmas collection for Holmegaard, in which Jette Frölich invites us to celebrate Christmas together. Frölich’s 2022 interpretation of the atmospheric festive season beautifully illustrates the message of our common Christmas. It is all about home, and the illustrations on the bottle reflect that joy of anticipation when we cosy up indoors and get together with family and friends from near and far. On the front is a front door flanked by Christmas trees, lanterns on the steps, Christmas lights, snow and a fence. On the sides, through the windows, you can see the Christmas decorations, Christmas tree and presents. To emphasise the joy of anticipation, there are children peeping through the window. There is also a touch of tradition and joy of anticipation for the grown-ups. Down the side there is a classic calendar, so day by day in the lead-up to Christmas, you can look forward to enjoying the contents of the bottle and, slowly but surely, approach 24 December.
