I celebrate Christmas. I continue to celebrate Christmas until Epiphany – January 6.

As I was putting up my tree and hanging ornaments, and as I was taking down my tree and packing away ornaments, many memories came to mind. I remembered when I was given an ornament, who gave it to me, who made it for me, etc.

It is important for those memories not to be forgotten. For years, when I have received an ornament, I have added it to my list. I record who gave/made it for me, and usually a little tidbit concerning the gift – was there a special reason for giving me THAT SPECIFIC ornament?

By keeping a list of my ornaments, others will one day be able to know why certain ones were so important to me.

Something to think about.
