Anyways, back to the point of this post. Because my husband and I have yet to establish our own Christmas decor or tradition, I am going to talk about the decoration I liked best as a child. When I was younger, and my parents were still living together, we would always decorate the tree as a family. One year we even video taped the event although I have no idea where that video is now. My favorite decoration that went on the tree was the silver icicle tinsel. I loved how messy it was and how it got every where. My parents hated using it but it was my absolute favorite. They always had to remind me to be careful with it. You could only hang a couple of strands at a time or you would end up with these tangles clumps of silver all over the place.
I have wonderful memories of draping that stuff on the tree. I miss those days but hope to recapture those types of traditions before my daughter is old enough to remember Christmas.
