If you took away the sentiment I don't think I'd have any Christmas decorations left. Everything means something. This snowflake with the jewel in the middle was made by Mother probably 18 years ago. It has a tiny music box inside and it still works. When I press the center it plays a medly of Christmas songs. Rascal hears the tiny sound and lifts his nose and "whisper howls". He howls very, very quietly. The crocheted snowflake laying on the branch is one of a dozen that Catherine made for me long ago, too.
The peanut man was made for me by my granddaughter Lindsay when she was small.
I know your ornaments and decorations are sentimental, too. That's what makes our Christmas trees so special, bringing back all those sweet memories every year. Diane
