THIS. THIS is why Buzz is here! So people can share their super duper ideas like this one!
As well as a push towards non-Christmassy trees (thus, the twig tree!), one of the things we have been keeping an eye out for is non-Christmas oriented ornaments…
And this idea, send in by someone who has been doing it for years, is PERFECT!
Every year, they make an ornament out of a recent photo – here is what she said: “We exchange an ornament every year with our kids’ pictures. On our Eid tree is a history of our kids growing up. Now that my kids are older, I don’t set up the tree any more but I always display the ornaments!”
It makes a lovely personal gift too – am sure the grandparents and aunts and uncles would love it 🙂
More great role models 🙂

Dozens of volunteers are this week making free packed lunches to feed youngsters during the school holidays
And last week — when 18,000 homes had their water supply cut — these four young men took it upon themselves to deliver 1,500 bottles of water to elderly residents across the borough.
Their kindness has been hailed by leaders in the town who said their actions are an example of Bolton’s cracking community spirit.”
