The Creation of Family Traditions: Annual Ornaments
A wonderful tradition to start with your family or significant other is the giving of an ornament each Christmas. My Christmas tree is filled with hand-me-down glass, mercury and silver ornaments and wonderful big white lights. I simply love it. It is scattered with photo frame silver ornaments from Pottery Barn, each engraved with the year and filled with a special black & white photo capturing a special moment shared from this year. Personally, I alternate between the open square frame and the double locket-style ornaments - but I love that this has become a tradition for my tree and that we're able to capture a special moment with our photos.
Though there are many other wonderful annual ornament series, such as the Swarovski snowflake ornament that simply sparkles in the light!
And of course - it's great when decorating your tree to reminisce about the wonderful memories recaptured when going thru each year's ornament.
Please share with us any holiday traditions you may have with your family!
