One Christmas Eve, many many years ago, things were getting very frustrating for old Saint Nick. The reindeer ran off, Mrs. Claus was having an affair, the elves were smoking dope, and production of toys had come to a complete HALT, so needless to say Santa was stressed out beyond any rational point of thinking. A little angel came into Mr. Claus's office with a christmas tree and spoke to the angry red fat man in a sweet soft voice "Santa, I have found the most beautiful of christmas trees in the north pole! Where would you like me to stick it?" And that boys and girls is why you'll find an angel on top of a christmas tree.
The angel on top of the tree simply symbolizes that the angel is watching over us on the most important day of the year, Christmas, the birth of Christ. Having a star also symbolizes an angel. Happy I could help! Check out my profile! Follow me! (:
i have never seen a christmass tree with an angel atop of it , they always put a cross like star on top of the tree , but then again ? why do all christians use a tree ? jesus the chrst had nothing to do with any tree , the tree in this case ? is borrowed from the ancient mesopotamians ( iraq of today ) were the akkadians and assyrians and sumerians use to celebriate every new year in 1st -12th of nisan ( april ) the ( anu-ma-ellish ) = the creation of earth , tree also resemples life , they also decorate it to resemble the tree of life = anu - wa = heavenly seed , later became the term foe the grapes , and wine in assyria especialy , the star in other hand in christian religion ! is to resemble the north star , @ latitute 40 of the taurus constilation , wich also was the same star that marked the birth of the christ , according to the ancient texts prophecised of his coming as the saviour of mankind or humans , hope this helped you to understand why they celebrate with a tree and a star on top of it , for more detailed info go to www.piney.com/ancient history/religions
Putting the angel on top of the tree is because of God's choir of angels. God sees all houses with the angel on top, he sends the choir to sing sweet carols for the family. You may not be able to see the choir singing, but you feel it in your heart. As the days until Christmas grow short, the angels begin to strengthen, then, the day after Christmas, the angels sing one last carol, wishing them a safe, fun, and happy year. And that is why there is an angel at the top of our tree.
The average person that has a Christmas tree has a angel or a star. The angel means the angel watching over us to make sure that our holiday is filled with fun. The star means the Three Wise Men that followed Jesus in his birth story the star lite up their way across the world.
