Advent Calendar – December 1, 2009


The Christmas Tree

Did you have a real tree or was it artificial? How big was the tree? Who decorated the tree? What types of Christmas trees did your ancestors have?

UPDATE: there are some great posts coming in and there are some common threads among them:

  • many of us had mothers who insisted the tinsel be placed on the tree one strand at a time (thanks to Janine at Janineology)

Finally, I found a post today that really captured the spirit of the Christmas tree and holding on to traditions that can be passed down to the next generation (thanks to texicanwife of Mountain Genealogists).
