Holiday Memories

Holiday Memories

Susan Henderson

Every Christmas from age 1 to 25, my father gave my sister and me a Christmas tree ornament.

He gifted them to honour family, to mark the occasion and to remind of us of the year we had just shared.

Our summers in Maine were marked with a sail boat or a starfish ornament. My love of skiing was celebrated with tiny skis hung on a red ribbon. And the year I began playing guitar, he gifted me a mini guitar I could hang on my tree.

At age 25, my father passed. As luck would have it, I had accumulated almost enough holiday ornaments to fill a whole tree.

At age 26, the first year my father no longer joined us around the Christmas tree, my sister and I surprised each other with a holiday ornament. We laughed and shed a tear that we had both continued this tradition without a saying a word.

My sister and I continue this gifting tradition to this day - just because it is a joy to give and to mark every year with a holiday ornament.

So I am so delighted to share with you our new Suetables addition - a candy cane and a stocking, both of which can be personalized. So, just maybe I will be gifting my sister a Suetables ornament this year.
