When it comes to holiday decorating, many families enjoy the tradition of pulling out that box of treasured Christmas ornaments and finding a spot to hang them on the tree.

New ornaments can be purchased en masse for reasonable prices at many Long Island retail chains and department stores. When you're in the market for something special - themed ornaments or those suitable for gift-giving - you may do well to browse the latest selection at specialty shops. If you don't feel compelled to add to your own collection, you might just imagine Santa himself dropping in to fill out his personal wish list.
