Hopefully it isn't an after thought but sometimes it is due to the amount of choices. What goes on top of your Christmas tree? Do you go with the traditional Angel? Or maybe your have one of those cool modern toppers that looks like a star or a crown. I have known some to go with Santa. I have even known a few to use a bow.

So is there a good choice for the top of your tree or should it just be whatever is left in the ornament box? The answer is neither one are quite right. Christmas tree toppers should have a meaning. Families often pass down a tree topper. Country Living Magazine has put together a list of 24 Christmas Tree Toppers. If you are starting a family tradition you may want t check out the list before you decide.
