  • Yes St. Nick brings them a new ornament to put on the Christmas tree. My son likes to put all his ornaments (4) on the tree all by him self! I love getting to show him all the ornaments St. Nick brought me when I was little =) It's fun to look back and see what I was into back then!

  • My mom started it with us when I was young too. Then when we left home and had trees of our own, we had ornaments to decorate them with. I like this tradition.

  • Sometimes we do or we make a new for the tree each year. It keep them busy doing a school break or a snow day.

  • We each pick out a new ornament for ourselves each year. I think it will be fun for him to look back at them when he is older, and see how his personality grew and the stages he went through. ;)

  • That is the fun part! My mom always got us one that had something to do with whatever we were into that year, tennis, an animal etc. So fun looking back.

  • We make new ornaments each year. I keep all the ones they make (unless they are perishable lol like the dried apple slices we did last year). They cherish that tradition.

  • I do. Before I even had my son, I started give my nieces, nephews and sisters and ornament every year as well.

  • I get my kids to pick one new one out each year. That way when they are grown, they will have ornaments of their own, and wont have to steal mine, like I did with half my moms, when I moved out lol. Last year we had such a hard time deciding on what ornament to pick, so we each picked out like 3 new ones. They love picking them out!
