Gifted: Mystic Seaport Christmas Journal

My aunt gave both my sister and I embossed Christmas memory books this year. The journals have five pages of calligraphy-decorated pages to fill for 20 years of Christmas seasons. There's even a space for your annual holiday card photo. Documenting this first year while taking down the tree already felt like a tradition!

Mystic Seaport, a Connecticut nautical museum, sells the journals, along with a selection of other seaworthy gifts.

I picked up this book in the early 1980s (not in Mystic; I can't recall where). I kept it for quite a few years and haven't of late...seeing this made me want to find it and write in it again.

My sister gave me this journal years ago... I just completed the final year. It's really fun to look back and read the stories of 20 years. Now... I need to buy a new one!

My husband and I started using this in the late 1970's and are well into our second volume! One year we gave all four of our kids their own to fill in! It's great! We include our Christmas card and letter so it's really fun to have a continuing record.
