The theme for this week is “nice.” How perfect for the week before Christmas. I decided that I would blog about some of the Christmas items that I have inherited. Remember, this family does not discard much that has sentimental value and Christmas items do indeed have a lot of sentimental value.
Let me start with a couple of Christmas postcards that were sent to my father.
I also inherited ornaments that hung on my mother’s tree.
When I was very young my mother bought this Santa in a sleigh. Santa even comes with a music box which plays Silent Night. He is somewhat the worse for wear but I love him, just the same. It has been in the center of the dining room table for as long as my parents were alive, and now it spends Christmas on a table. When I walk by it, I often wind up the music box and listen to Silent Night.
