Tree Ornaments

A scene from the childhood of the logophile.


"Why are these called ornaments?"
"Well, it is a very interesting story, I am so glad you asked! Long ago people just had plain trees, but a clever man named Guido Ornamente decided he would use some leftover scraps of colorful material his wife had to make interesting things to decorate his tree. His children loved it! Soon the neighbor children were asking if THEY could decorate their trees. Soon the entire village had the most gorgeous Christmas trees ever seen. Word spread over the years and soon every Christmas tree in all of Italy and all of Europe and now all the world is decorated."
Much is explained, eh?
Anyway, here are some of the docorations on our tree.

The Christmas Goeduck, ho ho ho
A Opus and Bill Ornament, cuz Bloom County should live in the heart throughout the year, just like the Christmas spirit.
Go stomp some dandilions!

A Washington state ferry, a gift from home while the family was living in Italy.

Great idea Guido,

Buon Natale!

I love the ferry. Great ornament. Our tree has only hand-made ornaments from the family. It makes it all the more special.

Gotta go - I think I just saw Santa...
