Every year, I go to a small town for their Candlelight Home Tour with four girlfriends for girl time ( 'cause we all know good girlfriends are the best psychologists), good food, peanut M&Ms, champagne cocktails, and most importantly, shopping. This special time kicks off the Christmas season for us.
Traditionally, after touring the final home, we head for The Enchanted Forest to see the Christmas trees, sponsored by local businesses. This time as I walked through the forty-ish trees, a beautiful, red, star-shaped tree topper entranced me. I pulled out my trusty Blackberry and captured it:Isn't it gorgeous?
All of the sudden, my eye caught every topper there. I snapped pictures of those as well. Why stars on top of Christmas trees?
I found this Wiki answer: A star on the top of the tree is representative of that star that led the wise men to Jesus.
Pretty cool. I've always loved the shape and colors of the stars and put them all over my tree and have a silver tree topper.
But I couldn't let my photos go. So, I took all my pictures of star toppers from my galpal weekend and created a movie for you. Enjoy!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
