kind of like the other question.....Christians ("believers") and tree toppers

Do you have an angel or a star? What does it mean to you?

We have a star this year. It represents the Star of Bethlehem.

  • We have a star, for us it represents the star the Wise Men followed to find Jesus. We don't take the tree down until after Jan. 6, which is when we add the wise men to the nativity scene (and yes, we do know that the wise men did not find him in the manger).

  • We have a star. Our last star died and they didn't have any angels cheap. I guess you could say it stands for the star of Bethlehem, but really I don't emphasize the religious aspect in the tree. We have a nativity set, and remember that its the "birthday of Jesus", but we really don't keep it that religious. I honestly put more emphasis on the goodwill and cheer, and think that this kind of attitude is one we Christians should keep all year, as it better reflects the loving kindness and compassion we're called for than I see most of the other time. ;)

  • We have an angel. It was my grandmother's, so it's more of a family thing than religious, although I am a Christian.

  • we have a red glass 'spire'-type thing. not really sure what its called, but its about 18" long, and points upward. its pretty!

    when the tree theme was 'all santa, all the time', i had a white-on-white santa atop the tree. before that, it was a white/gold angel, who's arms/wings moved in/out. she was pretty, too. never have had a star. one year, i fancied a huge ribbony bow that looked like a fluffy pillow stuck on the top, with tendrils coming down around the tree.

    i change it every year. :))
