    The stockings. I've had mine since I was born. They aren't just beautiful — they add a touch of past Christmases.

    In our home nothings say's Holiday's like our cinnamon scented pine cones basket's, with a touch of baby's breath and some Holly's, I like to spread them all over our house to get an even scent I do this right after Thanksgiving to start our Holiday's, when I come home from work or school and feel tired or stressed and opened the door that first cinnamon scent just takes your breath away my children love it.

    Definitely the Christmas tree. You can beat that smell, decorating it with the family, etc. A great feeling and something I look forward to every year without a doubt.

    Without a doubt, my Santa collection! I buy one each year right after Christmas to add to the existing Santas–they're on sale and I just tuck it away with the collection. That way, every year there is a new Santa to see right away.

      My sister does the same thing. I love the collection. It's funny, her daughter (24 years) is creeped out by them because they look so real. lol

    The nativity scene that we display in our house says it all.

    I grew up in and have married into an interfaith family so i love the mix of Hanukah and Christmas in our house. Stockings on the mantle, menorah on the counter, and a christmas tree with blue and white ornaments. It helps both my husband and I keep the traditions we grew up with over the years.

    The single most important Holiday Decoration in my house is a picture of my boys with Santa that they had taken on their own as a gift to me. It was one of the most thoughtful gifts I had ever received. The photo is the first decoration I hang and the last I put away.

  8. SweetLiz says:

    My Nativity. It belonged to my mother. I think of her and my dad and our family Christmas Eves (7 brothers and sisters) when I set it up. Our family still gets together on Christmas Eve.

    I have a collection of Santas that my grandma started for me years ago, and it's still growing!

    Like so many others have said, I love the Christmas tree as the thing that captures the holiday but it's just not any Christmas tree. You see, I have two Christmas trees that I put up each year. One is decorated to go with my living room decor and the other one is smaller but oh so much more meaningful and precious.

    This Christmas tree is decorated with my chidren's handmade ornaments (they're grown adults now) and some of my deceased mother-in-law's original 'old' glass ornaments (like the ones you see today that are trying to capture the 'old' look today, mine are ORIGINALS!!!) but the best thing about THIS Christmas tree is the fact that the manger is displayed underneath to celebrate the birth of Christ.
