The ornament that has to be displayed

Postby Andybev01 » Fri Nov 14, 2008 5:56 pm

How many of you have that one ornament that no matter how tattered or ugly, has to be displayed or it just isn't christmas?

Here's mine. He is one a pair made in the 50's and in real life they don't scowl at you...only in photos.

...and those 'candles' look a lot like billy-clubs...

weird.

You think he looks evil? No! He looks Christmassy to me!
Remember, Christmas isn't about gifts and lights.
Christmas is about the savior, who lights up the dark, on ALL nights.

I have an old one from my grandmother that my parents always used to put up. Kind of a sequin bird thing that is really pretty, but kind of showing its age. I'll have to take a picture of it.

I used this for my card that year ;-)

HA HA...reminds me of a Santa playing the drums that my mother-in-law had ...his eyes light up RED when he plays the drums. It scared the living daylights out of my kids when they were little!

I agree that seeing the old ornaments is a wonderful way to bring back memories!

Some are from as far back as childhood, and decorating the tree would not be the same if I ever left them in the box, instead of hanging them and remembering the day I first received the ornaments.
