I do appreciate all the love and concern.

Yesterday was a little weird for us... it was the first time we didn't attend a church service for Christmas.

Haha, no. Just the tree and a few scattered decorations. The tree is void of decorations on the bottom 4th because a certain little girl like to use them as her personal playthings and hide them around the house.

Well, one thing you could do, is start your own traditions. Christmas can be whatever you want it to be. A family tradition has more meaning than a cultural tradition IMO.

"That *special* thing we do every year."

One of my traditions that I've always wanted... once I get married...will be buying one new ornament every year for our tree, and ONLY using these special ornaments to decorate with. The longer the family exists, the more the tree will evolve. And each ornament will have meaning.

...haven't yet thought about what I will do if anybody gifts me an ornament ...Consider

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but that first kid will bring at least 6 home from school that first year…..glitter, macaroni, one made from foam with a photo, a handprint, something that they will tell you is christmas that looks like vomit on paper, made from a plastic cup, then add a few extra for every year thru 6th grade. Oh --- got a dog?-- don't put anything glass in the "tail zone" or 'toddler' zone.

Maybe I'll get a little 3 foot plastic kids tree for the kids to put their crap on Tongue. Haha, or I can allow those ornaments on as well, we will see!

As B&A points out below, you can make your own ornaments (not just your kids). Such ornaments will likely have more meaning.

This person knows my tree. Also, if any dogs are pups, avoid the stuffed animal style ornaments in the lower branches. They look too much like dog toys. Haven't had toddlers for many years now. Had forgotten that part.

For us, every year, the first ornament that goes on the tree is one my wife made in kindergarten. That one ornament means so much to her every year. It's made from steel wire and looks like a 6 pointed Christmas star with a spider on it. Ugliest ornament you've ever seen, but the most important one.

We are lucky it survived our burglary from 1999. We were in the process of moving from our old apartment to our first house. We came back to the apartment to get more of our stuff to find it had been burgled. Most of our personal Christmas ornaments and decorations had been stolen by some teens from the area. We never recovered them. But somehow, that one important ornament remains. We lost some of the ornaments our daughters had made in kindergarten and 1st grade. We look forward to ornaments made for us by their kids...someday.
