Memories from Christmas past
Treasures hung each year
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is giving a Christmas ornament that represents an event that year. My kids each, of course, had a “First Christmas” ornament.
When they were growing up, the ornament might have represented an activity they were involved in (like hockey, soccer, band, etc.)
When they grew up and had homes of their own, I gave them each the ornaments we’d collected throughout their childhood. (It was, admittedly, as sad thing for me to give them up!)
Since then, I continue the tradition with engagement ornaments.
And family ornaments.
