Our oldest Christmas ornaments

These felt nativity scene characters are our oldest Christmas ornaments. At my "miscellaneous shower" Joanne P. gave me a small box of Christmas decorations: glass ornaments from the 1960's, a couple of boxes of tree lights, a small box of tinsel, and a set of nativity scene characters to be hung on the tree. For years we hung these (and the other wise man, the other shepherd, the angel and the star) on the tree. The children often took the nativity pieces off the tree and played with them. That's how the other pieces got lost. Over the years the glass ornaments broke, the lights stopped working, the tinsel wore out, but these felt ornaments remain - 26 years later.
