Just curious what is the oldest Christmas ornament that adorns your tree? I dont have anything too old.. it would have to be our first daughter first C-mas ornament which will be 15 yrs this December Not antique of course... but still ...
I think my oldest ornament is probably only about 7 years old...that's when I moved out of my mom's house and got my own place. She still has the "old" family ornaments that she hangs on her own Christmas tree. Some of those came from my grandmother's house and a few are 100 years old. I expect that she will someday divide them up between all five of us kids.

Last Christmas I was living in an apartment and had all my Christmas decorations in the basement there. I had been very busy and got a late start on putting up Christmas decorations. I went down there to get my stuff and somebody stole just about all my Christmas stuff. Everything besides the tree and some random things. The even took all the personalized ornaments and stockings. I hope they had the same name. I had to buy all new ornaments and decorations. So I don't have anything really old.

I have 3 ornaments out of a set of 4 of the flintstones. The 4th one broke. My parents had gotten these for me when I little. They are around 28 - 30 years old. I also have some plastic ornaments of choir boys that my parents had bought before I was born.

My ornaments, that I put on my tree, are about 30-40 years old handpainted russian glass ornaments. I bought them some years ago and the woman in the store told me she found them in an old warehouse.
At my parents house I always have to put up a Santa candle that I got when I was about 4 or 5 years old (I´m 29) but I will never lit it.

The oldest ornament on our tree is a plastic Santa in sort of a metallic red finish that dates from the WW 2 era. It was from my grandparent's tree. The story I was told is that glass ornaments were hard to obtain during the war years in the States and an early form of plastic was substituted.
