Christmas is a time for families and sharing memories. Naty and Dr. Andres Apostol, of Monett, have combined traditions into their Christmas tree.

On the tree are ornaments with photos of the Apostols and the sisters from St. Vincent's Hospital when the couple arrived in Monett 40 years ago. Other ornaments include photos of their children growing up, plus newer ornaments with photos of their grandchildren.

Christmas offers a chance to show off various collections. Naty has her Santa collection on display in the home and many other items gathered from the Philippines, illustrating traditions for celebrating the holiday in the Apostols' original country.
