One of the best parts of Christmastime is decorating the tree. Patriotic ornaments can be a meaningful addition, especially for people who have extra reason to take pride in our country. This includes first responders, government employees, and those who have served in the military or had a family member who served. People who want to display that pride during the holidays might like to hang patriotic ornaments on the tree. Here are just a few examples:
American pride is even more important when it’s shared on a national holiday. Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Patriot Day are all appropriate times to celebrate patriotism.
Patriot Day was established by President George W. Bush on December 18, 2001. He created this holiday to remember and mourn those who were killed in the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Many Americans take time every September 11th to remember not just those killed that day, but also the first responders. These brave men and women charged into the chaos while everyone else was running the other way. Many of those first responders also lost their lives.
First Responder Ornaments
First responders play a critical role in our society. They are the first on the scene of an accident, a fire, or a crime. They put their lives on the line every time they report for duty. Sadly, many first responders do perish while serving their communities across the nation. Their jobs require years of training, with often low wages and few benefits as their reward. This is why it’s so important to acknowledge the first responders in our lives, and thank them for their dedication.
Every time someone calls 9-1-1, firefighters, police officers, paramedics, and EMTs are on the other end. They rush to the scene of the emergency to help in any way they can. They save millions of lives every year. If you have a first responder in your life, show your appreciation this holiday season with an ornament personalized just for them.
Armed Forces & Military Ornaments
For members of the Armed Forces, literally fighting for freedom is the best way to demonstrate love for their country. The events of September 11, 2001 inspired many brave men and women to join the military. Currently, there are over 1,300,000 people serving in the military, with over 800,000 in the Reserves. Millions more are veterans who served prior.
Holiday Traditions has a wide range of patriotic ornaments for all the main branches of the U.S. military. Personalize them with a name and date! This Christmas, proudly hang these on your tree in honor of your loved ones who have served or continue to serve.
Patriot Day, Veterans Day, and even Christmas can be the ideal time to show appreciation to first responders and military personnel. The brave men and women who serve our country give us all reason to be proud Americans. With personalized patriotic ornaments, we can easily display that pride at Christmas and all throughout the year.shop ornaments
