While there are many reasons that families have yearly to choose their specific Hallmark Christmas Ornaments, mine has been the same since December of 2006. My nephew, Matthew, died in a tragic accident at the age of 5. Although he had a plethora of favorite super heroes and toys, he LOVED Scooby Doo! Because his death was so close to Christmas, I chose to give each person in my immediate family a Scooby Doo ornament in honor of Matthew. I have given them one every year since. Every year, we all wait in anticipation to see what they will look like! So while Christmas is a time of joy, excitement and celebration, for my family, it is also a time of remembering and reflection and choosing to live life Wide Open - taking in every moment! Loving without limits, serving without prejudice and giving without constraint! May we all choose to live our lives with such passion that others will see the love that we all can have for one another if we choose to share it.

This ornament brought back so many memories of my childhood. What an awesome design and creation. I buy the Scooby ornaments each year, and I am most grateful to Hallmark for continuing to do new ones each year. Love It!!!
