It's very common (in my experience, at least) for one (young) sibling to get something simply because another (young) sibling is. Birthday gifts, for example -- if one sibling is having a birthday party, everyone that I know will purchase a small gift for the other sibling(s) as well, so that they don't feel left out. This continues until the kids are old enough to understand why they don't deserve gifts on another person's birthday.
Based on that, I find it perfectly acceptable to give Johnny an ornament so that he doesn't feel left out. :shrug:
I don't really have a problem with Victor receiving an ornament, either. This debate over who is or isn't a "real" Horton doesn't make sense to me, given all of the adoptions and such in the family. The Horton family is a blended family, and Tom and Alice weren't really in the business of excluding people for arbitrary reasons. I can't imagine Alice ever denying one of Maggie's kids an ornament simply because he wasn't a fan favorite or the storyline that made him one of her kids was contrived.
What bothers me is the people who should have an ornament, but don't -- like Marlena. However, that doesn't mean that it's okay to exclude other people just because Marlena has been excluded.
