How many of us have wonderful memories of Christmas pasts?
When I think about Christmases as a child, I think of a 16 ft. tree that almost reached to the ceiling and was filled with small stuffed animals and ornaments of every kind. My mom called it a nutcracker tree. Gold tinsel was wrapped around and around the tree with many sets of colored lights. One set of lights that I fell in love with was a small set of twinkle lights that mom strung from the balcony. I would dream that they were the stars in the heavens and they memorized me as a child.
As an adult I followed many of the traditions that I grew up with as well as bringing many of my own into my Christmas decor and style. Mostly they were ideas of Christmases past.
