Favorite Christmas Ornaments

I thought I would show some of my favorite Christmas ornaments. Several of them are from my childhood. However, this first one was my mother's when she was a child:

Newer ornaments that I've bought since we've been married.  Can you tell I like snowmen? The middle one is from Santa's Village in Jefferson, NH.  I love Santa's Village!

Campbell's Kids ornaments from the late 1980s and 1990s.  Does anyone have these?  You had to send away the UPC labels from the soup cans to get these.
"Hope Your Christmas is M'm! M'm!  Good and Merry."

This is one of Handy Boy's favorite ornaments, so I had to show it here.  Good ol' Spongebob.
Do you have some ornaments from your childhood, or ornaments that have been passed down from other family members?

We have a couple from our childhoods, but currently, we display most of what has been handmade by either myself, my other crafty friends, or my kiddos.....those are my faves.

Love the first ornament! I don't think I have anything from childhood on my tree but I have an ornament my godson made me in 2006 when he was 6. I'll always cherish that one.
Blessings,julie

I loved looking at all of your ornaments. I love snowmen too. I have snowmen, santas, candy, ice cycles, toys, train planes, doll, kid themed and the list goes on--I just love Christmas. Thanks for adding them to the ORNAMENET PARTY.

I have some glass ornaments from my childhood and some newer ones in a similar style. Unfortunately, I have been afraid to use them since I got cats.
