My mother used to hang every single individual piece of tinsel, one at a time, so they'd hang just right--the old heavy-duty tinsel that didn't stick to everything and form blobs when a draft hit it from an opening door. Anyway, each of my brothers and sisters had a favorite ornament. When we were old enough, we got to hang it on the tree ourselves. Mine was a yellow ball with red lettering saying, "Merry Christmas."
Today, although the yellow has faded, it hangs on our tree, right next to the angel on the star, which was Charlotte's favorite ornament from her family's tree when she was a child.
