What is on the top of your tree?

I have a Waterford tree topper that I won't use because I have a young cat who has never seen a Christmas tree before so I am not using anything breakable on the tree this year. I am using my mother's angel tree topper which is soft and unbreakable.

What do you put on the top of your tree?

This year I have big bows on top.

My ex liked a lighted star, but I like the bows better.

on the top! It changes colors.

My favorite topper was this crazy star we had when I was a kid, it had tinsel and multicolored lights and was tacky as can be and I LOVED it!

I have an angel that dh and I bought our first Christmas together as husband and wife. We will celebrate our 20 year anniversary next month! She looks as beautiful today as the day we bought her.

On one is a hand carverd wooden cat with twinkling stars hanging off his tail. A gift to me from my mom's best friend from their trip to Kennebunkport, ME. They are both in heaven now watching over me.

orange, yellow, and green (haha) angel from Haiti. I'm pretty sure it's made out of broom bristles. My youngest nephew is from Haiti and it's something his biological father sent our family and I love it!

Yes - my wonderful Aunt Alyce loved Christmas and about 8 years ago she died in December. We have a beautiful white Lacy Angel so on the bottom of her dress I wrote her name & Our guardian Angel and the date she passed. Every year we smile as we put Aunt Alyce on the top of our Christmas tree. She would have loved this!

I used to always use one of my favorite angels on top.
Then my husband bought me Santa Claus riding a carousel type reindeer. When the tree is plugged in, he goes up and down on his reindeer.

I have always used an angel, but this year when I assembled the tree it was too close to the fan (the blades are turned off of course) to fit the angel on top. We had gotten a Santa last year that I used for a centerpiece and I was able to fit him on top. But since he is for a tabletop display, his boots show and looked kind of funny sticking out underneath on the tree. I had some silver and white poinsettias that I stuck around the edge and DH thinks he likes it better than the angel! It really goes well with our glittery tree.

This year I have a cheap plastic white and gold star from Wal-Mart that my husband bought. If the dogs knock it down, I won't have to worry much. I used to have a big bow that I made, but I have changed my ornaments from brown and turquise (not sure of the spelling as I don't spell this word much) to red and gold so everything matches the living room and not the dinning room.

I have an angel that my grandma bought at a garage sale in the early 80's, but I saw on the packaging it was manufactured in the 70's. It was never opened when I inherited about 5 years ago. I love it.

For the first 5 years of marriage we had the top of our wedding cake (the figurines) on top, but then something happened to them when we moved into our first house. For the last 25 plus years we have used a ceramic angle that I made for our family.
