When I was a child, decorating a child's room for Christmas was important.
I was very young when I first had my own decorations at Christmas. Every year we had a large Christmas tree in the living room, and in order to get the Christmas tree into its stand the bottom branches had to be cut off. One year I was given one of those branches, but it is a little fuzzy whether I asked for it or was given that branch. I was just old enough to not have my little rocking chair in use, so I stood the branch up in the rocking chair. I was given the three Christmas ornaments that were not glass, from the unbreakable ornaments we had. This started my first Christmas decoration. Now, over sixty years later, I still remember this, and it was important.
