Making Christmas Memories

A friend was telling me of an idea she just saw in one of her December magazines! She is now saving the piece they cut off the bottom of her live Christmas trees every year and making an ornament out of them! For the first she is putting a large number 1 and the year, putting a small hook into it and tying on a peice of jute to be able to hang it on the tree! After several years she will have a "memory" from each live tree they have had and a unique ornament that really didn't cost anything extra!

Does your family have a tradition to remember each Christmas?

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

If you have an artifical tree you could always ask at the tree lots for the scrap branches that they cut off of trees to use for decorations.
