A (Christmas) Tradition Unlike Any Other

Christmas traditions are a big part of the fun each holiday season.

There are many types of traditions, including those that surround the Christmas tree - the visual centerpiece of so many homes.

And while pretty trees - real or artificial - with lights are beautiful in their own right, the addition of ornaments to those trees makes each one truly unique.

In our house, we have established a nice, efficient process - Henry Ford would have been proud - for hanging ornaments.

My wife puts all of the traditional ornaments - many of which we have had for decades - on hooks and our two children hang them on the tree.

When they have finished, I move some of them higher, as the kids are not able to easily reach the upper parts of our 9-foot tree.

Then comes my favorite part of the exercise - hanging my own special ornaments on the tree.

Since 1973, Hallmark has been producing Keepsake ornaments, which feature classic cars, traditional Christmas themes and favorite characters from Disney, Star Wars™, Peanuts® and more.

I started collecting Hallmark Star Trek and Star Wars ornaments in the early 1990s, and continue to do so to this very day.

In recent years, I have been adding various MARVEL and DC superheroes to the mix, along with a smattering of other pop culture ornaments.

This year, I have created an Egowall public space (see screen capture below) to showcase some of my favorite pop culture ornaments to give you a bit of insight into one of my personal interests (or vices - you make the call).
