Every family decorates their Christmas tree differently. Some decorate as early as the day after Thanksgiving. Others put their tree up, but do not decorate it until Christmas Eve.
When it's finally time to decorate, ornaments are some of the most important additions to the tree. These come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and materials ranging from blown glass to construction paper or pom poms. Many people find it fun to collect a specific series of ornaments such as Precious Moments, hallmark Keepsake, Christopher Radko, and many more.
Other folks collect ornaments from places they've visited over the years. A lobster ornament from Maine, a moose from Vermont, a palm tree from Florida... Most vacation destinations have plenty of ornaments to choose from. There are endless possibilities for the types of collections, and sometimes that leads to multiple Christmas trees in a single home!
Whichever kind of ornaments decorate a tree, the best part of all is actually hanging them up. it's often a family tradition that involves cookies, hot cocoa or eggnog, and holiday music. And it's always a scramble for who gets to put the tree topper on. Whatever size family you have, there's nothing more delightful than turning the tree lights on together and admiring the view.
