|Tree in Town Square," December 4, 1948 |
Tonight's the night.
We're going to decorate the Christmas tree.
I give the children an ornament each year.
We put the ornaments on the tree chronologically beginning with the wired gold tinsel "I love you" that my husband made for me while we were dating. I tell the story of our life as we go, something from each year. My husband usually hangs our couple ornaments. The children begin adding their ornaments when we get to their birth year. If they complain, I just tell them they're not born yet!
