    My favorite Christmas tree ornament is by far any that involves a creche. But my absolute favorite is one made in Bethlehem from an olive tree. This is where it all started. To me it doesn’t get any better than this one ornament.

    Every year my family chooses a special ornament for our tree. My personal favorite is our wedding ornament. It has our names and our wedding date on it.

    My favorite ornament is one that I made when I was a kid at home with my mom and little brother, we made the dough, baked them and decorated them. I love it because it just brings back great memories that I want to recreate for my son now.

    Every year my family gets a new ornament. In 2011 I was living with my aunt and her family, I couldn’t afford an ornament that year so I made one out a joker from a deck of cards and a hair tie & wrote 2011 on it. It’s my favorite ornament because it reminds of the time I spent with my aunt and how creative I can be.

    My favorite Christmas ornament was one my Grandma handed down to me that has been in the family for years. It is gold and has angels on it, it is used to hold candles on the tree.

  16. 8:43 pm 10/25/2013

    My favorite christmas ornament has always been the angel! We would decorate our tree and the angel was our tree topper. My mom had these golden angels we hung on the tree too! As I’ve grown I still put angels on my tree and our tree topper is an angel! My grandma always told me they watch over us! I have always enjoyed watching them hanging on the tree. The tree just isn’t complete without the angel!

    My favorite Christmas Ornament is a little pink plastic angel that I ‘stole’ from my dad when I was 4. I took it off the tree one night before santa came and hid it in my room, I thought she would bring me good lick. I called her mi chrismas fairy. it must have worked because I always had a good Christmas. I started hanging her on my daughters headboard last year to continue the tradition.
