Guest blog post by Molly of MollyFinds
When my husband and got engaged we were given a gift certificate to purchase something from a catalog. I knew immediately I wanted a light up angel for our first Christmas tree. We will be married 20 years this December with 2 children. Every year our family has continued the tradition that my parents started with my sister and I. Our kids take turns being the one lifted up to place and light her. It gets more amusing every year, as our son is now the same size as his daddy.
Vintage Christmas angels are something I try to collect for my Etsy shop, MollyFinds every time I find them.
This Paramount Electric Tree Topper Angel from the 1940s was one of the coolest I had ever collected and sold.
And I got the most heartwarming message from the lady who purchased her:
Molly, I received my order and it arrived safely. Thanks for packaging it so securely. My family had this angel tree topper (still has it) since before I can remember (I’m in my 60’s) and all my siblings fight over who will ultimately become heir to her. Now I’ve found the solution and can give a duplicate for one of them to cherish. Thanks! Linda
Traditions are part of what make memories so special and build anticipation not only for children but also the adults each year.
Here are some Christmas angels I have available for Christmas in July
