Favorite Family Christmas Ornament
I remember this paper ornament being on our Christmas tree when I was a little girl. It ended up in my collection and I put it in a prominent spot on the wreath every year.
I don’t know where it came from. I sure wish I did (talk to your parents/relatives about things like this before it’s too late.) All I know is that on the bottom it says “Made in zechoslovakia.” My mother’s grandparents immigrated from Poland so maybe it came from her family. Then again, my father’s relatives immigrated from Germany so maybe it was theirs.
I’ll never know but what I do know is that it reaches back in time in my memories of Christmas so even though it’s a little dilapidated (aren’t those the best kind of ornaments?), I love it for always being there.
