There’s just too much to be excited about the entire Christmas season. I may say that even the early decoration stage is going to be a worthwhile creative activity for the parents and a bonding moment with the kids. The most common Christmas decorations in a house are wreaths on the doors, vines on the stairs and windows, hanged stockings, snowman on the backyards but the most loved is of course none other than – tadaaaaaaaaa – the Christmas Tree! This Yuletide tree has been said to have lots of historical significance and reasons why it’s been decorated before, and the practice continues till today. In the classic tradition, real trees are used like evergreen , conifer such as spruce, or pine or fir bringing the calmness of the nature into the house. Evergreen symbolizes eternal life. Though in the later years the people realized using real trees could be harmful to the nature someday, so the use of artificial trees and even artificial decorations became the solution for the most households. Anyway, no matter what your tree is, whether it’s a real one or an artificial, please agree with me that it wouldn’t be complete until you see an eye-catching Christmas Tree Topper. I know, I know the tree could still stand without it, but what I really mean is that it would look dull and bald.
You can have this as your yearly tradition of letting the youngest in the family put the tree topper. Too sweeeeeeet!

Awesome Christmas Tree Toppers
First, we’d be sharing with you the Traditional Christmas Tree Toppers so you’d have fine time to choose which really catches your attention.
Angel Tree Topper
The angel is a symbolic host that proclaimed the news of Jesus’ birth in the manger, towards the shepherd and all throughout the world. Since angels are believed to be good, having one on top of your Christmas tree encourages everyone especially the kids to be good. That someone is watching over them and to keep them safe. Still a very touching presence.

Here are some super adorable lighter star tree toppers. You’d be so torn between this and that for sure.

Santa Tree Topper
Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle or Santa Baby (lol) call him whatever you want! He’s the old Christmas legendary fat guy that is said to live in the North Pole. Kids are told to write to him for their Christmas wishes every year because during Christmas eve, he’d roam all over the world along with his reindeer to drop off gifts and goodies from his sleigh. He’d pass through the house’s chimney and also would not miss to put some stocking stuffers! That’s why kids are also excited to hang their Christmas stockings before bedtime. Goshhhhh! Santa it’s been 27 long years and I can’t figure out how I got my stocking stuffs even if we don’t have chimney at home! That really puzzles me a lot. Anyway, this guy isn’t ordinary because kids can be disciplined just by mentioning his wonderful name. He is watching whether you are naughty or nice! Believe me he’d be a super cute Christmas tree topper too.

Modern Christmas Tree Toppers
Why are they categorized as modern and not the vintage tree toppers? Simply because these are stuffs you less expect to be put at the top of your Christmas tree. Only by the influence of the society and media like TV and magazines that they have became options of a Christmas decoration. Some of these modern Christmas tree toppers are also associated with the season like reindeer, elf and Grinch but agree with me you never thought they could tree crowns too. Another additional tree topper is the Cross Tree Topper since Christmas is a festival of the Christians celebration the anniversary of Jesus Christ’s birth.
Candle Tree Toppers
Just like the Star that produces light, a candle tree topper has also made it’s way to be a part of the Christmas decoration. Actually in the history, real candles were really used to light the Yule tree but since it’s dangerous it’s been replaced by the electric lights. At least now the electric candle bulb is back and promoted, on top of the tree!
