    Star for me! :)

    Star
    Is it bad form to vote on your own poll? Is it akin to liking your own facebook posts? :o

    I do love a good star myself, but we've had the winged madam for so long now, I'm loathe to retire her!

    No tree here. Trees are 'outside' stuff.

    We have stars on top of both of our trees. I don't like the look of angels.

    I like the idea of a snowflake! :D

    I forgot my mum puts a big bow on one of our tress, that can work well too :)

    You do know why people put stars on the tree in the first place?


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    We have a star. Well, it's not actually on the tree. Stupid thing wont fit on the tree so it's on the mantelpiece.

    A star on my own tree but the "home" tree has an angel, which is a little creepy and battered looking, but she's an institution at this stage.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    We used to have an angel on the one in my parents' house until the year the Christmas tree kept falling down and the angel's head fell off and went flying into the fire. Ah Christmas memories.

    The star leading to Bethlehem ?

    I know but a star isn't as religious looking now is it .

    Yeah, I've got a little cute sheep who sits on it. I'm into mycology (the study of shrooms!) and one year came across some decorations that were mushrooms, fabric (like little plush toys) so we got them for a laugh, then the fairy disintegrated so we used the largest shroom on top, and now it's just tradition.

    Always a lovely star! It just feels more like Christmas to me than an angel.

    Fairy on the main tree, star on the one in the porch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,641 ✭✭✭✭ Mars Bar


    We had a gold angel for years but we put her up on the tree on Monday and she wouldn't stay up there as her head is too big for her body. Haven't decided what we're getting yet but I would love a light up snowflake!

    Alternate between Angel/Start every year
