Tradition carries the torch of Christmas spirit

Judy Salts holds the twin angel ornaments that always adorned her family Christmas tree growing up. Judy’s mom was a twin.

The Christmas season is one of the most special times of the year. For Aberdeen Village residents, it’s a great opportunity to pause and reflect on those special moments from Christmases past.

This season is rich with celebrations and traditions, and our residents took time to reflect on their favorite traditions and things that are special to them.

Judy Salts

Tell us about your favorite Christmas ornament or decoration and why it is special to you. “My mother was born in 1912. She was a twin and had these two beautiful ornaments of little angels on a puff of cotton like a cloud with tinsel over each of them. Growing up, we always had them on our tree. When I got married, my mother gave them to me and I have always put them on our tree."
