Adorable

I started a fruit and vegetable Christmas tree many years ago and this ornament adds to my tree with great joy. Old world ornaments are my favorite ornaments to enhance my tree. They are so well made and decorated. Just love them all.

Sweet potatos in our family Christmases

When my great great grandfather brought his family to rural Texas in 1847, the family had plenty of traditions but no money for Christmas decorations (and probably nowhere to buy them). They made beeswax candles and boiled sweet potatoes to hang on the tree. These traditions have continued in my family ever since. When we found glass sweet potatoes available this year we switched to glass instead of boiled examples. From my first memories of Christmas until he was no longer physically able, our father cut a living cedar tree and set it up shortly before Christmas. It needed to be tall enough to touch the ceiling. The decorations included home-made hand-dipped beeswax candles and cooked sweet potatoes. My recollection is that there were usually several dozen candles and about half a dozen yams. The candles were only lit for an hour on Christmas Eve, while Daddy read the Christmas story to the family. We always had a bucket of water and a wet mop nearby to douse any small conflagrations. After we established our household, we continued the candles and sweet potatoes tradition on our tree. The trees transitioned to pine and then artificial and shorter, but the spirit remained the same.

Old World Christmas

Thank you so much for sharing such a cherished memory with us. We are all about traditions to cherish, and this is definitely one to cherish. What an honor to have our Sweet Potato ornament be a part of your ongoing tradition.
