05 Jan Christmas Memories
I’m putting away Christmas decorations today and there are 3 things that are so old that I have to be very careful each year taking them out and then putting them away. Each of these decorations are from my childhood. I probably have one of the original “elves” (at least 50 years old), my mother handmade the cotton bells and they hang on my closet doorknob each Christmas, and the snowmen were filled with candy when I was a little girl and you could twist the bottom to get the candy out. I was enthralled by them as a child and still love them so much. I still put out these 3 things every year with such wonderful childhood memories. One day, they will be passed down and no matter how old and raggedy they are, I’m pretty sure they will still be on display each Christmas for years to come.
