Christmas Memory Monday

A while back I reconnected with an old classmate of mine, Tara, who has a blog of her own, Murphree's Law. Tara has designated Mondays in December as Christmas Memory Monday, and using that day's post to document some favorite childhood Christmas memories. She invited her fellow bloggers to join the fun, so today I'm sharing one of my own memories.

Our family has always enjoyed traveling, and whether we were vacationing at the beach or in Washington, D.C. or Disney World or somewhere in between, part of our vacation perennially involved a search for a Christmas ornament to commemorate our trip. It's a special (and usually fairly inexpensive) way to "extend" the vacation, and whenever we put up the Christmas tree and took out the ornaments we'd be filled with memories from our vacations.

The practice has been passed on to me, and now whenever I travel I try to find the perfect ornament to help me remember my trip. Those ornaments are probably my favorite souvenirs to get when I travel, and they always bring back a lot of great memories when I unpack them and hang them on the Christmas tree.

Click here to visit Tara's blog and read about some of her favorite Christmas memories, and feel free to post your own either in the comment section or on your own blog.

I love this Lisa. We, too, search out ornaments for our tree wherever we go. I love reminding the girls each year of past trips. Thanks for sharing your memory with us!
