Memories and Magic - The Sentimental Ornament

Amidst the festive decorations, cheerful gatherings and joyful melodies of classic Christmas tunes, one cherished tradition stands out – adorning the Christmas tree with tiny treasures that carry with them a trove of memories. The sentimental ornament.

Whether they come from your childhood or were made by your own children, these handmade treasures are the ones that truly steal the show. They’re so much more than decorative baubles – they are time capsules of emotions that somehow capture the true essence of the holiday spirit and, oh, the stories they tell!

When I walked into my mom’s house and saw her tree, I couldn’t help but stop and take a closer look at each carefully placed ornament. And then I saw it. A tiny little stocking with my name spelled out in glitter that I carefully crafted in the 1st grade. I said, “Oh, mom, you still have it.” Her answer was the same as in years past. “Of course, I do!” And both of our eyes filled with tears.

It was such a small, yet powerful reminder that the true beauty of the season doesn’t lie within the gifts we receive, but in the love and memories we share with loved ones. These little trinkets of days gone by tell a story by magically weaving a tapestry of joy, laughter, and the enduring spirit of togetherness.

So this year, when you decorate your tree or find yourself relaxing after you sit down to admire it after a long day, take a moment to embrace the memories of those sentimental ornagments along with the magic that comes with celebrating the holiday with those who matter most. Oh, and thank your parents for holding onto those memories!
