Christmas Countdown ...9... Stars

Stars are very common symbols of Christmas. The Christmas Star, the Star of Bethlehem, is said to have led the Magi to Bethlehem where Christ was born. In many cultures, the star plays a very special part in Christmas and religious celebrations, as a symbol of high hopes, and good fortune   For example in Alaska, children sing carols and carry a star shaped figure from house to house  in the hope of receiving treats.  In Hungary, a star is carved into half of an apple, supposedly for good luck. Here's wishing you a starry night!
