Christmas Tree

In Fun

This Tree is very symbolic to my family because Christmas is very special to us since that is when the family get together and we catch up on things. There are a lot of special memories that I cherish during Christmas. But if it's anything that represents my family it has to be this because of how much my family loves Christmas. My Family usually has a dinner then we wait until midnight so that we can open are gifts and then we go to bed. The ornaments that we put on the tree are ornaments that we have gathered throughout the years ever since I was born. My grandmother passed down this tree to my mother which is another reason on why this tree has a lot of sentimental value to us. I had this tree for as long as I can remember, we build the tree together every year since it is not a real tree, but this is a tradition that my family has. If it is anything that has gotten my family through some hard times it is the holidays since everyone is so happy around that time of the year. This tree represents the strong bond of my family and the struggle that we have been through, and no matter what we stick together and always stay positive.
