I was looking at our Christmas tree the other day and realized that most of the ornaments are from places that we have visited or lived. Of course we have some ornaments that were balls bought at Target but most of them have some meaning.
Some of the ornaments were made by the children in preschool and some have their baby pictures in them or on them.
My mother actually started my tradition of picking up ornaments when I travel. When we were children, she would always buy three ornaments from places we visited. She would buy one for herself, one for me and one for my brother. She had a collection for each of us for when we got married. (I’m not as thoughtful or apparently as wealthy as my mom — I’m not buying four of each ornament.)
She also has bought us probably 20 years worth of Rich’s cut crystal tree ornaments. I love the Rich’s ornaments because they remind me of our annual visits to the Rich’s tree and the Pink Pig when it was downtown on top of the Rich’s building. (I forgot to post one of those.)
So I posted a few of my favorite ornaments and why I like them. (Yes, my tree is fake. It started as convenience when our kids were babies but now I’m allergic to Christmas trees.) I would love for you guys to tell us about your favorite ornaments and why and also would love for you to post them to the Momania Facebook page.
Share with us about your favorite ornaments and also post photos of them to the Momania Facebook page.
