English Christmas Ornaments

The English Class Christmas Tree found in the Humanities room.

Christmas is right around the corner, which means it’s time to unpack all the decorations and start furnishing your home with the Christmas spirit. When we look at our Christmas Trees, what is the most important part about them? The obvious answer is the tree itself, but the tree isn’t what represents us. It’s when we look at all the decorations found on it that we see who we are.

“From the hobbies and favorite things to capturing the essence of the season, the ornaments reflect the various interests and personalities of the students,” Humanities teacher Amanda Mohn said.

With the tree covered to the brim with ornaments, it’s easy to get lost in all the various stories presented. 

“I’ve seen a lot of creativity,” Humanities teacher Tom Rhoads said. “The most creative being the ornaments made from the limited materials we have. It’s very interesting to see a student make something from almost nothing.”

That’s not to say, however, that there weren’t those who put more thought into their ornaments. Those who took the idea of Christmas ornaments, and sprung life out of it.

“The two most creative ornaments I’ve seen are Giselle Webster’s Drake ornament and a keroppi ornament which was made by someone I don’t know,” sophomore Adalynn Martines said.

Without a doubt, though, there is a lesson to be learned here; a key takeaway. Creative projects are meant to be fun, while also being inspiring.

“I think it gives us students a chance to really show who we are with a simple object; an ornament,” Martinez said.
