Our Heritage Christmas Tree
I have been thinking about putting a Christmas tree up that celebrates our family's heritage for awhile now. I finally did it this year. This tree is in addition to our regular Christmas tree.
A short, fall, getaway weekend to Frankenmuth, Michigan and Bronner's Christmas Store motivated me to do it this year. We found a very nice, four-foot tree, which is what I had been looking for. In addition, I bought flag ornaments for the countries our ancestors emigrated from; plus, the United States. Bronner's had all of the flags we needed except for The Netherlands. I did find The Netherland's flag ornament online, so our countries are complete.
L-R Top Row: United States, Switzerland, Great Britain
Middle Row: Ireland, France, Germany
Bottom Row: Netherlands, Canada, Scotland
Currently, I only have the flag ornaments and a couple of ornaments that celebrates Dutch Heritage. I am going to leave it this way for now. I don't know what else I want to add. I am open to ideas, so please share yours in the comment section.
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
