I am so glad you asked this question.
Last year, for the first time in over 40 years, we did not put up a real tree as we were in the process of selling our apartment in the city. We found a tiny little ornamental tree that was battery operated with lights. We put it in the window of our apartment. We were not sad about that non-tree because my husband was getting ready to retire and we were moving on.
Fast forward to this Christmas. We went to a local nursery and found a mid-sized tree. My two little granddaughters (who live close by) couldn't wait to decorate Grandma and Grandpa's tree. They were there to help us within an hour of our bringing the tree in the front door!
My daughter told us not to include the fancy, glass ornaments and so we took those out of the boxes. We hadn't realized how many ornaments we had collected over the years, most of them being child friendly!
The girls were delighted to find Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Snoopy, and other Charlie Brown ornaments. They squealed as they hung them on the tree. Of course, our tree was bottom heavy with ornaments but there was a lone ornament on the very bottom of a branch, sitting there all by itself, that was absolutely magnificent because it was hung by one of our granddaughters, most like the baby!
