My sister and brother-in-law bought an old farm house and have been working hard at renovating it. The first year that they hosted the annual family Christmas Eve dinner, she was mortified that a swam of ladybugs suddenly appeared in the house. We all had a great time and it was a memorable Christmas.
I’ve always thought of ladybugs as lucky and purchased these ornaments for both of our trees so we’d always remember that special Christmas.
