I Spy Upon A Tree A Christmas Star As Pretty As Can Be

a shining star for your Christmas treeDecorating Christmas trees is an age old tradition. In our family, the final touch is to put the Christmas star on top. The Children takes turn year about – it’s my job to lift them up so they can attach it. Christmas is a time for traditions, but even they are being turned on their head and it’s not always for the worst.

The humble Christmas star that has stood on top of Christmas trees for generations has had a modern makeover. I remember when we made our own out of coloured cardboard. These days they really do answer the children’s call of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Our pictured star is in stunning silver and is decorated with little beads that have a mirror effect – it certainly does present that twinkling effect that children of all ages love. Imagine that atop a Christmas tree with a string of flashing coloured lights. The mirrored effect of the flashing lights can be amazing.

This is only one of many stars and some of the modern designs are really effective and really do ‘add the finishing touch’. Today’s Christmas trees are in a league of their own with the amazing array of lights, Christmas decorations and stars available.

The hardest part to decorating a Christmas tree is knowing where to start. There is never a problem with knowing where to finish – it’s always the Christmas star – the Christmas tree’s crowning glory.

A Xmas Tree Is Just A Tree Without The Decorations

A tree doesn’t become a Xmas tree until it’s been proudly decorated by the family. Whether it is tinsel, coloured lights, baubles or decorations made by the children – your tree needs those decorations to come alive.

baubles for your Xmas treeIt’s also a symbol for the family. Xmas is coming – but when mum is cry from the kids. Decorate that tree and everything changes – Xmas is here, again. Children love to decorate Xmas trees and they seem to have a pretty good eye for it too.

Baubles are the most popular decorations. They are available in a range of colours although red is by far the most popular followed by silver and gold. They look a little like fruit hanging from the Xmas tree.

They are not the only decorations. The crowning glory is the star that sits at the top of the tree. This has always been a tradition – a symbol – with dad, or grandpa, being the person who places the star. These days families have their own traditions. Perhaps each person has a turn or it is left to the youngest – this is where many traditions start.

Xmas trees are the center of everyone’s Christmas. It’s where most families gather when gifts are handed out. It’s where many families gather to sing Christmas carols – or to just be together. Christmas is not Christmas without a real life Xmas tree – order yours today and you won’t disappoint the family.
