It’s always fun to pull out the Christmas ornaments and to reminisce about where and when we got them. Both my husband and I have several from our childhood, this being one of them. I just love it. It makes me think of third grade. Evidently the kids love it, too, because they kept stealing it away and playing with it, and when I asked where the Smurf ornament was, they looked at me like I was speaking Sanskrit. I tried to describe the Smurf, and my daughter said, “You mean the little blue elf?”
Mr. Smurf is now safely at the top of the tree. Unfortunately several others did not make it safely there and are now in the ornament hospital for repair and convalescence.
