Ever since trees began to be decorated for Christmas in the late 19th century, there has been a special place reserved for a very special ornament. Usually that ornament was a star or an angel and the special place was the very top of the tree.

The star represented the Star of Bethlehem that guided the Wise Men to the manger. The angel, of course, stood in for the one that appeared to the shepherds.

Here in Atlanta and all over the world, tree toppers have evolved from the simple to the high tech gadgetry we have today.
