When I was young, my parents took the Christmas tree and hung it from the ceiling. It sounds odd but it was very practical. How many stories are there on social media of kids and pets knocking over the Christmas tree. This tree hung the fragile ornaments and some of the handmade ones collected over the years. Now with toddlers of my own, I want to have ornaments on the tree without the fear of some of the more fragile ones being broken.
