Nostalgic Ornaments

Nostalgic Christmas Tree Ornaments

My grandmother has had the same decorations for over 50 years, yet every year it's always fun to check out her antique ornaments from the '60s. Felt-shaped animals and Christmas characters, wooden nutcrackers, glass icicles, feather-covered clip-on birds, and glass ball ornaments are just a few nostalgic ornaments that come to mind when I think of my grandmother's tree. As for the pickle, my parents started this tradition in our family based off of a German tradition. Parents hide a pickle ornament in the Christmas tree, and whichever child finds the ornament first receives an extra gift. Even as adults, the game never gets old. Happy nostalgic Christmas tree decorating!
