Christmas Tree Topper memories, pride of place on the top of Christmas tree always went to a fairy dressed in white. Or was it an angel sure it was the Christmas fairy; and she was usually last to go on the tree apart from the tinsel. One thing for sure always after the other tree ornaments such as 'hanging balls.
So what competition does the classic Christmas tree fairy have, that will confine her to history as the star ornament. Claus has been muscling in on this prime real estate, presumably tired of being stereotyped as a chimney person.
I'm not sure if Santa is aware of this, but his insubordinate reindeer are also seeking the limelight behind his back, and will no doubt be seen this Christmas atop many a Christmas tree. Also, the increased fame of snowmen has gone to their heads a bit, and they too may be seen smiling out from the top of lots of brightly decorated trees.
