German Ducks

My Christmas tree doesn't have a theme, unless you want to call it a Hodgepodge of Memories.
Every single ornament on my tree has a story or memory behind it. For the next few days I'll blog some of my ornaments.
These little duck charms were given to me by my friend, Lynn. She brought them to me from Germany. I thought they would make cute Christmas ornaments, so every year they go on my tree. I absolutely love them because they remind me of my childhood. My mother was born and raised in Germany, so there was a German influence to my childhood (even though my mother fully Americanized herself, and, sadly, I've never been to Germany myself).
This little hanky was given to me by a German relative when I was a child:
I don't think Lynn ever saw my hanky, so little did she know what a perfect gift the duck charms were for me! When she reads this, she'll know. Thanks, Lynn.
