There are so many special ornaments you can add to your tree, from capturing this year's special events to starting an annual tradition. These keepsake ornaments would be a great addition to your family's tree!

When do you usually put up your Christmas tree? Is it a real or an artificial tree? Do you get your kids special ornaments each year?

Our tree is put up on the first.  My husband wants fake trees until the kids are like 5. We made ornaments this year with the kids but just a couple.

 This year I did it right after Thanksgiving.  It is fake and pre-lit.  I will add candycanes.

We put it up the day after Thanksgiving. I prefer a real tree, but we have had an artificial one for several years, we just got too old for all the lifting involved wih a real tree. We do buy a special ornament for our child each year, don't have it yet, because I hadn't seen any I was really crazy about, but some of these are nice.

Our tree goes up just after Thanksgiving. We have 1 large real tree & 1 large fake tree, 2 small fake trees & we decorate 1 in the yard. I do get the kids a new 1 each year, usually related to something special that happen that year.

We have an artificial tree that is loaded with a lot of decorations that I have collected for over 25 years. Many belong to the kids. So when they start a family I will be passing them along, and their family's can enjoy them as much as I have.

Our artificial tree goes up at Thanksgiving. We all decorate it and put on a mix of ornaments.
