Christmas Ornaments: A Family Tradition
By Christopher Smith
Decorating the Christmas tree just wouldn't be the same without Christmas ornaments. Every year it is a little magical taking out those ornaments you have had for years. Adding new ones to the tree every year can keep that tradition going as well.

Most of us have a few Christmas ornaments that have been handed down to us from our parents or grandparents, and are cherished keepsakes. Each time we unearth them and unwrap them, memories of the past bubble up and we remember the good times and sometimes the bad times.

Add New Ornaments To Your Collection

There are so many wonderful new ornaments in stores every year, that it can become a tradition to add new ornaments to your family's collection that adds even more memories. One good way to acquire those expensive ornaments is to wait until the big Christmas sales. Often these happen before Christmas when there is still a good selection of ornaments and other Christmas paraphernalia to choose from.

It's not likely that you will have to worry about having too many Christmas ornaments anytime soon. With the attrition rate every year when ornaments are broken, and adding a few new ones every year, the numbers should even the average out in the long run. If you are worried about some of your older ornaments breaking in storage, there are plenty of sturdy storage options specifically for Christmas ornaments.

It is always a good idea when decorating your tree that you place any precious or especially breakable ornaments near the top of the tree where curious little hands or enthusiastically wagging tails will not hurt or break them. Cheaper or plastic ornaments are always an option for the lower half of the Christmas tree.

Even if this is your first Christmas in a place of your own and you are just starting out, there are very affordable Christmas ornaments available. Checking thrift stores or dollar stores are both good ways to find cheap, decent looking ornaments for your first tree. Artificial Christmas



trees can be found fairly cheaply as well, especially if you don't mind having a smaller one.

Christmas, Christmas ornaments and Christmas trees are such a part of many family's lives during the holidays and it is probably the most magical time of the year, especially for younger kids. Many adults look forward to the holiday season as well, and even though unpacking the ornaments and decorating can be a chore, the result of your efforts can make the holidays more magical and exciting for everyone
