Come Christmastime, twinkling lights, candles and garlands adorn homes. But the tree takes centre stage.

Tucked in its boughs are keepsakes, life firsts and love.

We asked you to show us your cherished tree ornaments: a toilet paper tube angel that crowns the tree, miniature mittens hand-knit by your grandmother and a pasta-art picture frame were among the decorations near and dear to you.

They are the ornaments you unpack every year, hang first on your tree and could never part with.

They remind you of old memories as you make new ones each year.

They tell a story, your story and we thank you for sharing.

We asked you to show us your cherished tree ornaments. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and gather 'round the CBC Your News Community Christmas tree. Readers share more ornaments below. Hover over the Christmas tree.
