The two most common Christmas Tree Toppers are the star and the angel. To the Christian faith, the star symbolizes the Star of Bethlehem and the angel symbolizes the host of angels in the Nativity story. The Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star, is the star that led the wise men, or magi, to Bethlehem and revealed the birth of Jesus. The magi followed the star, which stopped above the location where Jesus was born. The angel symbolizes the host of angels, angel of the Lord, or heavenly host from the Nativity.
