Contest Winner #2, Valerie Golembiewski

Wedding Day Dance, a Hallmark ornament for all ages

by Valerie Golembiewski

My greatest Hallmark ornament find was the 2005 Wedding Day Dance. It was introduced at just the right time. We had 3 weddings that year, so it was the perfect gift, and we have 3 granddaughters who are enamored of Disney princesses, especially Cinderella. Guess what they got for Christmas? They were so excited. Instead of putting the ornament away after Christmas, they asked their mom if they could keep it displayed all year - and they have - every day since. They especially like listening to the music and have discovered they like Tchaikovsky!

The wedding couples also liked the ornament so much, that they keep them displayed in their homes as a reminder of their wonderful day.

We also gave three of these ornaments to couples who were celebrating special anniversaries that year: a 50th, a 40th, and a 25th.

Last but not least, we bought one for ourselves. It is a reminder of my own Prince Charming!
