ho ho ho

This ornament was my husband's when he was little. His mom gave all of his ornaments to us a few years ago. Between the two of us, we could decorate a whole tree with similar looking elves and Santas. They are so cute and bring back memories of fresh Christmas trees with big colored bulbs and lots of silver icicles. The blinking lights made a tinkling sound that you could only hear when sitting beside the tree in the dark and all alone. I loved that sound - and everything else about Christmas.

I love the Santa!! Unwrapping each ornament, year after year, brings such joy!! Isn't is fun to discover the story behind each one!
