Christmas In July: Nasty Baby

Favorite Christmas Ornament

This ornament comes with a story and a history.It was originally a baby doll for my great grandmother. It was bought in the late 1800s as far as we know, and passed down throughout the generations. The tradition has always been that Nasty Baby is the first ornament to go on the tree and the last to come off. Nasty Baby was given her name for her unclean appearance and the fly adornment on her head. This ornament has been a part of my Christmas for as long as I can remember.
