Being a self proclaimed purger of non-essential items in my home, I have grappled with the idea of commemorating the birth of my son last year with an annual ornament for our Christmas tree. Why would I want to spend the money? Then, last year while decorating our first Christmas tree, in our first home, sentiment got the best of me. I carefully unpacked the ornaments that my mother had very graciously stored away for me many years ago from our family collection thinking I might want them someday when I had a family and house of my own. Some were of no interest to me, but there were some that immediately unleashed a rush of fond childhood memories that I could not have possibly remembered on my own. These beautiful little objects had housed these precious memories for me.
Christmas means a whole lot of different things to so many people around the world, even taken for granted by some that resent the constant holiday push earlier and earlier every year by retailers and marketers. But even the most cynical of people cannot deny that the Christmas season is the time to reflect on years gone by and to remember all the precious moments that make up our lives.
