Add Your Own DIY Shell Ornament To A Magical New Jersey Christmas Tree For This Sweet Holiday Tradition

There are beautiful Christmas Trees in towns all across New Jersey but we know of only one like the tree in Normandy Beach. There’s no official tree lighting and it’s not sponsored by the city…this tree got its start in December 2012, following Hurricane Sandy. Much of the town was devastated by the storm and Sue Buzzi placed a little Christmas tree on the beach at 2nd Avenue as a sign of hope.

If you visit, check out all the delightful designs or add your own ornament. Some choose to write a simple message or draw a holiday design while others choose to honor loved ones. Each ornament is unique and special and the tree is beautiful both day or night! Share your photos with us in the comments, and thanks to Joseph Ritacco for the fantastic photos in this article.
