I have ornaments, both hand-made and store bought, adorning the tree. Some of them my kids made. Some, I made as a kid.
Every ornament has a story. Every thing around the tree does too.
|My parents got a nativity scene in 1965 as a wedding gift. I ended up with it in 2000 and have put it on display every year since. This is it's 49th Christmas.|
|The hand-crafted pink pigs got added to the scene in it's 46th year.|
|This light-up and working scene of the ice rink at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan relives a memory from the season in 2000 when the Platt family visited and my daughter, Natasha, skated out on the ice.|
This wraps up a week of family Christmas tree stories. Enjoy. And Merry Christmas!
