This is a stupid title. But, I wanted to talk about Christmas trees real fast. The Christmas tree tradition dates back to the 16th century in Germany! I don’t have time to go into a history lesson here, so if you want to know more, check out this website: https://www.countryliving.com/life/a45590/christmas-tree-origin/
What I really want to to talk about is the best part about Christmas trees – ornaments. My mom has been collecting ornaments since before I was born, and her obsession has resulted in about 5 large boxes of ornaments. Every year, regardless of tree size, we are unable to put all of the ornaments on the tree. And every year, we continue to add to our collection.
I bet your family has their own Christmas ornament traditions, too! I’m going to share some of my favorite ornaments from my family’s collection below to commemorate the season. I hope you enjoy!
Type 1 – Family Staples
Type 2 – Getting Crafty
Type 3 – Memories from Travels
Type 4 – Family Favorites
Type 6 – Honorable Mentions
I hope this post will inspire you to collect ornaments throughout the year so your tree each Christmas can be a big scrapbook of happy times!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 2021 is so close, and I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for it.
