I spent part of last Saturday setting up for Christmas. After going through the tough part of getting the tree and carrying it up a cramped flight of stairs it was time to decorate it. My mother buys a new ornament every year, and seemingly has done so forever. Her ornaments date back to the 50’s and spend the majority of their time in a box in her basement covered in tissue paper. Each one has a story, and my favorites are, naturally, about me. Unfortunately each year there are casualties, but not from being dropped, as was the danger in my younger years. We used to live in a house which basement flooded and those were the leanest times, but this year the damage was not something immediate like water, but a more persistent one, tarnish and oxidation of the metallic surfaces.
