Every year, I get an ornament for HJ that symbolizes something about the past year.  He hasn’t seen these ornaments, they are hidden away.  Each ornament has a little note attached to it saying why that ornament has picked.  The plan for the ornament box is that when HJ moves into his own house with a tree to decorate, I will give him this gift of meaningful ornaments.

And who knows, maybe he will get a sketch book for Christmas!

What Christmas traditions does your family have?  Does anyone else do an ornament box?
