Last week I wrote about homemade gifts that you can share with other people, and that included photograph ornaments. Since then, we have put up our Christmas tree. (We’ve gone “green” and have bought an artificial tree, rather than contribute to the destruction of natural trees.)
One of the joys of decorating the tree is in the rediscovery of the collection of ornaments accumulated over the decades. Hanging the ornaments would take a comparatively short time if it were not for the recollections we share about almost every one. It’s a nice tradition to invite family and friends over to help with the tree. It’s a wonderful way to share our holiday memories. It is a genealogist’s dream come true to be able to share stories with other family members.
It occurs to me that each ornament’s stories are important and should be recorded for future generations.
