#21 - Tree Topper

Angel topper on the left is 20 odd years old and resides on the Lakehouse tree. Cool tin angel on the right is about 7 years old and adorns the condo gold tinsel tree. I love an angel on the top of the tree compared to a star. Megan's family as the same angel on the left on their tree. Must be fate.

Tree Topper Angels
Often, people would place angels on the very top of their Christmas trees to symbolize the significance of the angels who appeared high above Bethlehem to joyfully announce Jesus' birth on the first Christmas. If they didn't use an angel ornament as a tree topper, they usually used a star, to represent the bright star that appeared in the sky to guide people to Jesus' birthplace. 
By placing angels on the top of their Christmas trees, some people were also making a statement of faith intended to scare any evil spirits away from their homes.
Relax... Respect... Enjoy...the angels in your life... Dorri
