Word Search: Types of Christmas Tree Ornaments (Contest)
Monday, December 4th, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…Terra Oenning!

In keeping with my Christmas Countdown over on Facebook, today’s word search puzzle’s theme is Christmas Tree Ornaments! We all have our preference for dressing up a tree. My granddaughter prefers a more modern and coordinated tree. My dd and I love a cozy, weirdly mismatched tree because we love the ornaments we’ve gathered over the years. The 10-year-old loves her tiny tree that’s decorated with pink pigs—her choice.

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, tell me about your favorite ornament!

    I have some crocheted (like tatted if you know what that is) angels that my mom gave me. Mom died in 1989. I treasure those.

    I don’t have any special ornaments. The last tree I ‘put up’ was in 2007 (or 2008) before my mom died. After my dad died, I decorated every year for her. But after she died, well… It was never the same. I had a hour+-each-way commute so I saw no reason to make multiple trips to the cellar to bring up everything to decorate and not be home to enjoy it. I have a fiber-optic tree I sometimes set up. Call me a grinch. Oh, I make candy and give gifts, but for me, the joy is gone. I hope no one every feels this way.

    Oh well, I have passed all my ornaments on to my daughter. They include the vintage ornament that my mother received on her first Christmas as a married woman. Then there are the handmade set I received on my first married Christmas. And of course, the annual ornament sent each Holiday to my children from my Mother. All special in their own way. I hope my daughter finds them as special as I did.

    My favorite ornament does not fit on a home tree but a town tree. It is a large ceramic ornament with a Currier and Ives design on front and back. I found it at an Antique Mall. I hang it in my front bay window on garland with lights.

    That’s a tough question. I don’t have any ornaments I don’t love. I’ve gotten rid of about 75% of my decorations in the last few years so I only kept favorites. I have a tree angel that I got more than 30 years ago that I still use even though she’s broken. I just love seeing her on a tree.

    A pair of glass teapots that are so old and fragile that I no longer put them up on the tree.

    My Dd loved Cardinals and built up a collection, so I tend to make my tree with a lot of them. My favorite is a hand painted cardinal on a long porcelain ornament that hangs on a stand to really show it off.

    My absolutely favorite ornament is one from my Opa and can’t go on a tree as it’s to heavy made of Delftware from the Netherlands. I’ve got lots of ornaments ones I’ve made, one we’ve gather for 40 years. A gnome tree. I want a patriotic tree most as I’m a veteran. My daughter and Mom helped, and I now have two U.S. Navy ornaments for it. Also a ceramic one made by my Mom when I was a child.

    I think I have 2 favorite ones, both are my kids first ornaments that I had made for them when they were born. It’s unique to them with their names and birthday’s hand painted on. I love them!

    I love doing these. While doing these I remember all the handmade ornaments my mom always puts on the tree that I made while growing up. I also love to add the shiny brite ornaments to our tree that are vintage looking. They make the holiday full of memories.

    I kept all the ornaments my sons made me,plus I collect fairies so but crystal/glass fairies and other ornaments for my tree and use them with with twinkle lights. I get a real tree also. It looks amazing once it is up and litghted up.
    I have 50 fairies,20 glass deer,20 doves,20 snow flakes,and 50 glass iceicles so all that glass looks like a fairy tale . I put my sons ornaments on last and make sure then can be seen.

    Most of my ornaments have disappeared over the years during various moves. I still have a couple that were the hallmark ones of child’s first Christmas for each of my daughters. We have a couple this year made by my granddaughter. She’s so proud to have those on the tree.
