The Story of the Christmas Camel

It was told that he had followed a star...one that led from Germany to Wisconsin.  He had lived in a manger for many a Christmas, until so many years had also traveled by - and he had been discarded with a life-time of collections.  It was in a box that he was found - at the near bottom of a dumpster - a gatherer found him, surprised that this fragile & humble animal had survived.   Now his travels have taken him to live in high regard on a farm.  He has been rescued to await another year of hope. 

Many blessings to all this holiday season!

I was touched by your story and the simple fact that sometimes the most fragile of things are strong enough to survive and to give joy for many years, to many people, Thanks for sharing your special gift.

It is also what draws me time & again to vintage items - knowing that some how they have been around to see years & years go by. That they have been used and have offered both purpose and prose to past lives. Call me a sentimental fool - and I will always gladly accept that distinction.

I found pictures yesterday from 1957 at my grandmothers & I saw all the great "memories" I have displayed in my house today. Thank you so much. Posted: 12:24 pm on December 7th
