In historic house, a history-laden Christmas tree

Perhaps the only communist Christmas ornament in Kansas City now can be seen at the Alexander Majors House. On Saturday, the ornament — a hammer and sickle on one side, a star on the other — was among the collectibles displayed by Rich Hoffman, an expert in the celebration of Christmas. Antique ornaments from many countries, Russia among them, were hung Saturday on a “goosefeather” Christmas tree at the Majors House.
