Everyone has Christmas ornaments. Well, everyone that celebrates Christmas has Christmas ornaments. It would be kind of pointless to have Christmas ornaments if you didn’t celebrate Christmas. I mean, you could have a Christmas tree even if you didn’t celebrate Christmas but that would be a little weird. And pointless.
Okay, so if you celebrate Christmas, and you put up a Christmas tree, then chances are good you have a collection of Christmas ornaments. Some old, some new, some cheap, some expensive, some in pieces, some intact (well, hopefully most of them are intact). There are the sentimental ones: baby’s first Christmas, the macaroni “something,” the plaster painted bell or star or whatever with a picture of your child. Then there are the hand-me-downs: The old hand-blown glass balls from grandma, the old lead-paint covered flaky ones that are slowly poisoning everyone. There are the pop-culture ornaments: Peanut M&M Darth Vader, Scooby-Doo with a Santa Hat, Garfield eating lasagna with a Santa hat (Garfield, not the lasagna). And finally, the plain glass (probably plastic now) colored balls.
If you’re like me, a lot of these ornaments have special meaning to you, maybe not the plain colored glass ball ones, but most of the others mean something. Some are obvious, some are obscure, but they all have meaning. To this day I know there are ornaments the hubby’s family still has that he remembers from his younger days. Wouldn’t it be nice to build up a collection of ornaments that will mean something to your kids? Reed and Barton has the solution. Every year they have a new collection of beautiful ornaments. Hand blown 12 days of Christmas. Sterling Silver Father Christmas. Not to mention the Sterling Silver Baby’s First Stocking. Can you imagine being able to hand that down to your kids one day? I can. And I will.
