I have a crystal tree that is about a foot tall and has a base with lights that flicker and I really enjoy it. It's from Avon and I will keep it. I had a nativity set that I made as a kid and thought I would always keep it but it was so chipped I finally parted with it and bought a new one.

Nothing in particular. I have an ornament that my mom gave me and my hubby for our first Christmas that I will never get rid of. PS....Sorry It took me so long to get on here today...thanks for covering FG :)

I do have a few decorations that I am or will be real unhappy to rid myself of someday. I have a gold fold reindeer that fits into a wreath and stands on a turntable with lots of little Christmas type ornaments tucked in around him. This year we bought a box of tiny "wire lights" that basically is a long wire with what looks like drops of glue stuck on it every inch or so. They are actually glass and ours ended up all red, but I wouldn't mind all white or multicolored lights. You can't see the wire or the lights in the daytime when they are not on. You can't see the wire at night when the lights are on and I'm not meaning that I did such a great job of hiding the wire. We basically threw them on because we didn't want to take them back and didn't know what else to do with them. I hate returning. I've had the entire setup for about 15 years. Every year when it's time to put it all away, it has a special bin with a lid that it goes in and I won't let my DH help me or put anything else in that bin because he'll stuff it with a bunch of extension cords from outside and break an antler or put a hole in it.
We go through it every year. One year, he took it out to the shed and apparently stuffed in the cables after that. When I opened it the next year, I was furious with him. He was lucky nothing was broken, smashed, dirty, or pockmarked.
There are few others, but mostly that is it.
Have a great one.

Every Year I get a dated ornament and last year my kids broke 2 of them one I could glue back together and the other is in the box it came in and It is my ultimate favorite. I probably will never throw it away.
