My mom used to buy us a Christmas ornament for each year and label it with a tag and the date. I have ornaments going back to 1954. I always bought ornaments for the kids and now, for the grandkids. When the kids moved out and got their own homes, I boxed up their ornaments and they had a start to decorating their trees.
That's more of a tradition, I guess, but those ornaments are full of wonderful memories!
I love this tradition Joan! We had special ornaments when I was growing up, but they were just bought (or made) here and there. I wonder if my dad still has any of these? I'll have to check.
Thanks for sharing Joan!
