The tradition of buying a Christmas bell from Macy’s began in 2008 when I made my first trip to New York. We went for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and of course we had to visit Macy’s and being the shopper that I am I HAD to buy something from Macy’s New York. I decided on an ornament that had the year on it. I also got the parade ornament that year too, but the bell has been a tradition ever since.
This year I’m a little sad though because I’m not putting up a tree. Because I have a fairly new tree and all new ornaments I value them and this guy (Bear) would tear it down!
I’ve decided to skip the tree this year. You see, Bear is only 4 months old and a very curious puppy that thinks everything in the house belongs to him. Fortunately we’ve located his hiding place in the yard and it’s the first place we look when the TV remotes are missing.
Maybe next year I can hang my 2011 ornament on my tree along with my 2012!
