It sometimes surprises me what can inspire a blog post. For instance, we were recently decorating the Christmas tree when I was hit by a blog hammer. It occurred to me that an abridged story of our lives can be discerned from our ornaments. In amongst the traditional stars, Santas, sleighs, and snowmen, as well as a smattering of one-off ornaments representing hobbies and interests of days gone by, certain enduring themes stand out, including:
The Occupation Series
The Libations Series
The Sports & Athletics Series
The Travel Series (shockingly incomplete)
The Motherland Series
The Pet Series (seriously lacking)
So what about you? What stories do your Christmas tree ornaments reveal?
