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 Warsโ„ข, Peanutsยฎ 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).
