Treasured Christmas Decorations

24 Festive Tasks: Door 21 – Christmas, Task 1:

Post a picture of a holiday decoration that is unique to your Christmas celebration and tell us about it.

My mom and I have two sets of Christmas decorations with a special meaning:

My set of Mexican and Native American (-styled) decorations, which I brought from California, the American Southwest, and, well, Mexico, and which reminds me of the time I spent living in the U.S.

… and a small set of traditional hand-crafted figurines from a mountainous region in South-Eastern Germany (Erzgebirge / Ore Mountains) that have been in our family since forever, and which are currently in my mom’s possession. (My mom’s siblings inherited similar sets from my grandma, too.) My mom’s set will eventually come down to me.
