Christmas Tree Top

Angel, Fairy, Star and other Christmas tree top ornaments

From my childhood memories, pride of place on the top of Christmas tree always went to a fairy dressed in white. Or was it an angel? No, I'm sure it was the Christmas tree top fairy; and she was usually last to go on the tree apart from the tinsel. One thing for sure, it was always placed after the other tree ornaments were covering the tree, such as the hanging balls and other little Christmas figurines.

Life has become much more competitive since then, and the Christmas tree top fairy has lots of competition now for the top spot, as the Christmas tree top ornament.

Traditionally it was an angel (or a fairy) dressed in white that were placed on the top of the Christmas tree.

The star ornament

These days the star ornament is more common on the top of Christmas tree, as only one of many ornaments competing for the top position.
So what competition does the classic Christmas tree top fairy have, that might confine her to history as the star ornament. No, perhaps writing her off like that is premature. I should first mention that if you want a classic, antique Christmas tree top fairy as your top tree ornament, then you can still find them. Tracking them down online is not difficult.

Aside from the nostalgia, though, there really is a big choice of Christmas tree toppers these days. The fairy has a close ally, an angel, competing for that top spot as a Christmas tree top character, and even Santa Claus has been muscling in on this prime real estate, presumably tired of being stereotyped as a chimney person.

I'm not sure if Santa is aware of this, but his insubordinate reindeer are also seeking the limelight behind his back, and will no doubt be seen this Christmas atop many a Christmas tree. Also, the increased fame of snowmen has gone to their heads a bit, and they too may be seen smiling out from the top of lots of brightly decorated trees.

Other Christmas tree top ornaments

Pride of place on the Christmas tree may also just go to a shape. A star can claim some relevance to Christmas, but other shapes too may be found in the Christmas tree top ornament role. While the Christmas tree top fairy was usually a doll, nowadays you get all sorts of designs and materials. Hand painted metal, for example, is now common.

Churches often use a bright star as their Christmas tree top decoration, as the major symbol of Christmas. It is also known as the star of Betlehem.

As always, though, it is down to budget and taste when it comes to buying your Christmas tree toppers. But at least, you can be grateful that you have a choice that is now quite varied. That used to be far from the case.

Whether you choose a fairy, an angel, a star, or something else altogether, you can always add a touch of uniqueness to your Christmas tree top ornament with a little bit of creativity. All it takes is involving yourself in decorating the tree, with the same zest and joy like your children do, or like you did when you were young. After all, decorating Christmas tree is all a part of the whole Christmas tree spirit and celebrations.

Your Christmas tree ornaments can, this year, bring that special touch of uniqueness for your visitors to enjoy; and your family of course!

Enjoy your Christmas holidays and celebrations!
