Geneabloggers Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories.
Our Christmas tree ornaments were the usual lights and colourful balls.
The special ones were those my parents bought for their first tree. Over the years most of the glass ornaments have broken but I have the precious few that are still left.
There were the Santa heads with the cotton beards, small chocolates and candy canes that were hung on the tree each year. Every Christmas my brother and I had a mission to sneak the odd chocolate off the tree and see if my mother would notice. She always did.
