Angel? Star? Bulb thingy? Bow? We always did angel when I was a kid. My dad tell an inappropriate joke about why there is an angel on the top of the tree. But when my mom and stepdad had their first Christmas together, they didn't have any ornaments (or money to buy them) so they decorated with Mardi Gras beads, and stuck a stuffed version of his favorite singer. In honor of that, my husband and I wanted to do something non-traditional on the tree, so we top it with an action figure of my husband's. Do any of you have fun traditions about your tree or what goes on top of it?
