Star or Angel tree topper

Which do you put on top of the tree? And does anyone know the meaning behind either one and why we use either a Star or an Angel?

  • Star - the star of Bethlehem that guided the Wise men in their journey to find Jesus.

    Angels - As in Luke 2:9-15 when the Angel of the Lord appeared to the Shepherds in the field

    We use a Star.....because it is a family tradition.

  • Angel -- The angel represents the angels that brought the news of Christ's birth or it could also represent the angel that appeared to Mary. Some people put a star in representation of the star that led the wisemen to Jesus

  • you made me lol. We have this angel that dd picked up and her candles blink off and on, it reminds me of an air traffic controller guiding a plane in for landing. Im hoping to purchase an angel without blinking lights this year. I grew up with an angel on the tree, actually I made it, but its long gone now. I do it out of tradition, I dont know the back ground of them though

  • We've used a star, we've used an angel, we've used a snowflake, we've used a Santa, we've used a nutcracker ... can't think of what all else right now, but I'm sure there are others! I have several tree toppers, we like to change it up each year. Those that aren't used in one year are stored for future use!

  • star = star of bethleham and angel for the obvious reason. We put a star up because well we don't believe in angels and the have nothing to do with Christmas for us.

  • We have an angel that has been in my husband's family for generations. His great-grand-mother made it.
