Milestones and Memories of Christmas Ornaments

Real Estate Agent with Sandpoint Realty SP36782


Christmas season is starting, what a magical time of the year.  The comforting presence of evergreen life and brightly colored ornaments offer hope to us during the cold winter. 

Those special ornaments often hold reminders of our life’s milestones and memories.  They remind us of the good times we shared with family and friends.  They may also remind of us the bad times we were at a low time in life all to show that we survived and went on.  Sometimes they are a final memory of someone we lost or the remembrance of when our children were growing up.  They may commemorate a child’s first Christmas or a happy couples first Christmas together, a trip to a new place or a gift from a special friend. 

I went for 4 years without my special Christmas ornaments, and I sure did miss them.  They are like special friends we wait all year long to finally see once again.  Post below if you have a special ornament in your Christmas box.

Hello Rain - while I don't have any special ornaments, I do understand the importance that they can hold when they are nearby.   Having them surround you during this special time of year can add to the fond memories.

I do have ornaments that have meaning to me. A hand-made ornament from a friend. One that someone gave us to celebrate our move to Montana. Ornaments with my children's baby photos. Mickey Mouse running which was given to me by a friend when I started running on a regular basis.

I'm looking forward to opening that Christmas ornament box!

Have a great day!

My youngest son is 28 now and living in TN.  While not a big fan of Christmas he still asked me to send a picture of his favorite mouse in a stocking ornament from when he was a kid.

Good morning Rain. As we downsized, we gave many ornaments to my son and kept a few for ourselves. Time passes but memories remain. Enjoy your day.

I am sure your son will have many years of enjoyment from them.

Good morning, Rain... that's exactly what I always say... that each year as I unpack my Christmas tree ornaments and decorations it's like saying hello to old friends and I have so many that bring back wonderful memories of people who gifted me many of the ornaments.

Over the years we have made it a point to collect ornaments from all the places where we have vacationed.  Our tree has a lot of geography on it's branches and no matter when we look at it we will smile for the remembrance of a special place

That is fantastic.  I had never really thought about it until picking up one in New orleans a few years ago and since then have been on the hunt for those vacation ornaments.
