We have an angel, ds 1 wants a star, I don't want star, I like my angel.

Why am I so pregnant and hormonal set on my angel, should I get a star?

I have a fairy in red with ginger hair at the moment. I've thought about replacing it with a star as i think it might look better, but I haven't found a star I like. I'm not keen on angels.

I have a fibre optic fairy... she is lovely all in white and not tacky, oh no

We have a star but I want an angel this year.

Jack Skellington dressed as Sandy Claws is my tree topper!

A big gold star that falls forward all the time. No angels here.

I have an angel which DS made at nursery when he was 3. He is 16 now. I like the bits which the children have made on the tree.

I am tempted by the whole TNBC rangefor DS's tree but will probably wait a while

Can you not put a star behind your lovely angel?

PrincessPumpkinshoutsBOO Sun 28-Oct-12 20:53:17

Ooh, a star behind the angel (which is lovely thank you) that could work smile

My parents have an ancient, creepy angel which has made me a lifelong star aficionado.

Star. Angels are wrong. My mother nearly cancelled Christmas the year I suggested having Fr Christmas on the top smile

We have an angel attached to a star circa 1980, sentimental attachments & I have to put it on! Kids can do everything else grin

Star here. Took ds to a Christmas shop when he was tiny, and he picked it up and hung on to it, and that was that, it's been at the top of the tree every year since. The angel that used to be there has been relegated to the tree that stands in the porch but she has to be tied on as it's a bit draughty there for her....

we have an angel here.. has taken me some time to find the right one.

fairy on main tree, star on top of little tree in the girls bedroom. both homemade and overly glittery.

3bunnies Sun 28-Oct-12 22:22:23

Star here, but thinking it is looking a bit tatty (just silver foil on a cereal packet) dd1 and I made it about 5yrs ago in a panic dh has got a Christmas tree and we have nothing to go on the top and no money might go and look on pinterest for ideas for new homemade star.

We have a vintage 1950s fairy.

JennyPiccolo Sun 28-Oct-12 22:25:35

A reindeer! He's quite jolly.

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Oct-12 22:34:00

I always use a star but would love an angel or fairy but I can't find any beautiful enough.

Has anyone seen any very beautiful ones?

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Oct-12 22:35:25

NeverKnowingly where did you get yours and is it beyootiful?

I have an Angel. She belonged to my grandparents and is divinely pretty with a beautiful gold dress. I have no idea how old she is but she was around when I was a little girl and my mum remembers her when she was a little girl (30s).

PrincessPumpkinshoutsBOO Sun 28-Oct-12 22:42:33

I never thought about anything else for the top like a reindeer or Santa, growing up we had a star that lit up and was the most awful luminous yellow/green (I think it was supposed to be gold). I remember loving that star, but always wanted an angel instead.
