Our Christmas Ornament Tradition


When my oldest sister was born, my mom started a family tradition that has lasted through the years: every Christmas each person in the family gets an ornament. Now the idea was that once each of us married, we would have a tree full of our own ornament memories.

All four of us are still single (check out “Santa Send a Fella” from Jazzy Christmas to You!), and let me just say the tree is pretty full! But each year we anxiously await to see what ornament we will receive. The new ornament is opened on Christmas Eve after we re-enact the Nativity.

We have many traditions, one of which I will talk about each day until Christmas! Tomorrow I’ll write about our Christmas pajama tradition…! Here’s to great family traditions!
