Welcome to Day Four of The Twelve Days of Tree Ornaments. Today’s ornament isn’t really an ornament, but instead this bear is part of my small stuffed animal collection and he’s very special. I place him under the tree.

His name is Felix and he was a gift from my father when I was ten years old, so that makes him an Elder Bear. On top of that he’s a Steiff, which are German made and are collectible (or used to be – is anything collectible anymore?)

Felix is wearing a smart sweater that was hand knitted by my friend, Kathleen. I can’t look at Felix without thinking of my father and all the Christmases of my childhood, which he always tried to make extra festive. It’s nice to revisit these memories.

Revisit ODFL tomorrow for another installment of The Twelve Days of Tree Ornaments.
