Precious and Not So Precious Holiday Traditions — 4 Comments

  1. I appreciate your article. Our first tree was from my Dad’s tree patch (he brought it the 90miles to our apartment). We had little money for ornaments. I had started buying Hallmark ornaments in 1977 and a few. Grandma would always bake and decorate cookies to put on her tree, so I did the same. I also tied red ribbon on the branches. And finally I splurged and bought an angel for the top of the tree. We didn’t really have the $10 she cost, but she was beautiful. That was in 1978. She still sits on the top of our tree every year!
    Merry Christmas!

  2. Getting out the treasured ornaments and reliving happy memories is the best part of the holidays! Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, Deborah, and thank you for taking the time to comment!

  3. I love my Margaret Furlong Porcelain Angels, hearts and Stars, and snowflakes I’ve have collected for 35 years. She still makes them in Oregon.I Also LOVE my Peach and Cream Jokers, Ballerinas, fairy’s and hand made sewn stars and crocheted hats, etc.
