Christmas Traditions: 17

Started by my godmother many years ago was our practice of putting an ornament on one of your gifts. She started doing this when I was about 10 or so. When Matt and Em (our cousins) came along, we started them from the beginning. What you end up with is an ever-growing and very eclectic collections of ornaments. When Matt and Em have their first Christmas in their own home, they'll have a collection of ornaments going back some twenty years.

Oh, this is such a nice idea! I have a ton of boring ornaments which will make very classic trees, but we don't have a tree because we're never home for Christmas. But we always had a real tree with real candles.
