Incredible! Decorate the same tree for 95 years! [photo]

Every Christmas here and 95 years, coming out of the boxes, adorned and placed in a prominent place in the house of the family of Ashton in the Uk. The little christmas tree has managed to escape from the bombs of Hitler and from deadly storms. The tree dates back to the 1920’s and has been decorated by two generations, making it no longer a family heirloom.“It’s a great piece of history and I’m so happy to have it,” says the 61χρονη Kaye Ashton. The tree was purchased by her grandmother Kaye, Elizabeth Naylor, in 1920, the year that gave birth to the first son. The child died at the age of 19 years old and from then on the tree each year is decorated in his memory. “Even some of the ornaments are very old, keep them all paying attention and didn’t even think about it to replace it. It’s something like a tradition for us every year at Christmas”, it complements the same.Source
