In my opinion, everyone should start a collection of something or other. And a few years ago, I decided that I wanted to collect Christmas ornaments! It all started with a trip to Orlando in 2007 that I organized for my brother and sisters. Aside from all the amusement park fun, one of the planned activities was a trip to see the Cirque du Soleil’s “La Nouba“ at Disney. It was our first time at a Cirque show and it was the highlight of our trip! I wanted to remember the special occasion in some way, so I purchased an ornament with scraps of the costumes inside the ball. From then on, I decided that I wanted to start an ornament collection commemorating those special events in my life. My collection isn’t very big yet, but I hope to keep adding to it (and those special memories) for years to come. Whenever the holidays roll around, I can unpack my collection of ornaments and reminisce on all the wonderful moments I’ve been able to enjoy.
