I visited a blog that was selling some of these tree toppers and the variety astounded me:

Some were wintery decorations. Things like:

* Snowmen

* Ginger bread men

* Spires that looked like the steeples of a Russian church buildings.

Then, there were some peculiar decorations that still had a Christmas connection.

* I found a few that featured Elvis (Blue Christmas)

* And at least 3 Grinches (Grinch pic)

BUT perhaps the oddest tree toppers of all were:

* A "Peace" Sign

* Tinkerbell

* Glinda... the good witch from Wizard of Oz

* and (pause) YODA!

"Christmas will come, it will"

Now I have no idea what those last four decorations had to do with Christmas, but I do know that none of those decorations came even close to competingwith the top two choices for tree toppers.

Can anyone guess what the two most popular are? (Angels and Stars).

Why would these be on top of Christmas trees? Because they are both part of the Biblical story of Christmas. The angels announced the birth of Christ to the shepherds and the star led the wise men to Him.
