Etly Klarborg, the person behind Klarborg Christmas elves, says that Christmas tree decorations should be special, something that stays on the tree as a tradition from year to year. Etly Klarborg has decorations that her grandmother and her mother have given to her, and these decorations were on her first Christmas tree in 1980 and will continue to be on every tree, says Etly. “When my boys leave the nest and get a Christmas tree in their own home, they will get a thing from their grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s Christmas tree, and of course, a set of my Christmas decorations, and it will continue this way for many generations forward”.
“It gives you a warm feeling, looking at the tree and thinking: there is hanging my grandmother’s fine glass globe, and there are mom’s homemade cones with a curved handle. I want to pass this tradition to other families with these small sweet and fun decorations. I just need to remember to tell that in our own home it is a tradition that the elf on the ceiling decorates our Christmas tree at night”.
