Christmas Ornaments, Bells and Candles in ASCII Text Art
Decorating the Christmas tree is different every year, even if you have the same ornaments. They never go on in the same order or the same way each year.
It's been awhile since people decorated the Christmas tree with candles. They turned out to be a pretty bad idea when it came to fire hazards. But they did look pretty. That's why we started using electric lights instead.
I only have a couple of typical bells on my tree. My favourite are jingle bells and I do have far more of those than the traditional bell shaped bells. I even have a wreath made of jingle bells for the door. It would be far too heavy for the tree.
One thing I have a real assortment of are the Christmas balls. Is there another name for those? Here at HubPages the auto checker didn't like when I had 'balls' in the title. I changed the word to ornaments and it was all fine then. I think people have become over sensitive to things like that. It's like adults bringing their own values and life experience to a child's game. The child doesn't have the same life experience and the adults shouldn't be bringing their life experience into the world of a child. Anyway, that's getting off topic.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas, Yule or Winter Solstice.
