This is the first time I will have my own tree.  What kind of ornaments do you like?  Pictures please.

When my now ex wife and I were dating we selected an ornament together of a Victorian couple singing from a hymnbook.  It was our first ornament together and it started a tradition of buying a new one each year.  No pictures, sorry, but it is my fav!  Enjoy your tree and MERRY CHRISTMAS :D

I have 1 orniment I found in my great grandmothers house. She actually got to be a great great grandmother before she passed. I always feel that she is with us when I hang it on the tree. Sorry I don't have a pic. It's a hand made glass bell it doesn't  look that special it's just special to me.

Every year my wife and I picked out an ornament together. I guess it is the last one we picked out at her last Christmas.  It is a little glass tree with gold sparkles on it.

Our fiberoptical Christmas Tree, it's hypnotic.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Sorry, mine's a popcorn string. Not that dramatic. :)

Oh, almost forgot. After our house burned down when I was 8, I got to pick out next years tree topper. It was a bent up snowflake out of a bin and cost 25 cents. I guess that I just felt sorry for it. My mom's still got it and it's been on her tree for almost 40 years now.

Merry Christmas all.

Every year I trawl the shops for additional angel ornaments, my tree is chock a block, I also have heaps of butterflies, stars, santas and coloured baubels - but I insist on adding a new and unique angel each year, at least one, this years I discovered a dozen - sorry me and photography are not a savy combo but I think you get the idea.  Friends know my penchant and I have homemade angels, an angel from Harrods, crystal, glass ceramic and plastics angels of every description imaginable, I love my tree, it is 18 years of collectibles from me and hand me downs that are as old as 40 years too.
