My House of Faceless Angels

December 25, 2012

I love Christmas angels.  They decorate my shelves, my walls, and my Christmas tree in ever-increasing number.  I can’t get enough of them.  However, only a star tops our tree.

As much as I love angels, I am extremely picky about what kinds of angels I use in decorations.  I have yet to find an angel tree-topper that passes muster. After a few years of trying his hardest to help me find something I liked enough to be the centerpiece of our tree, my husband announced he had figured me out.

“You only like faceless angels,” he said.

“What?!!?” I retorted in my one-eyebrow-raised look of “Good Grief,” but I wanted to see where he was going with this.

You only like angels without faces.  Look, let’s do a test.  So he sat down at the computer and showed me dozens of angel tree toppers.  Every one with a face made me cringe.

Angels with faces.  They're creepy, right?

Angels with faces.
They’re creepy, right?

Faceless.  Much better.

Faceless. Much better.

There are some really creepy Christmas decorations out there, folks.


But the angels with human faces are the ones that push me over the edge.  Viewing image after image online, I agreed with my husband.  I like faceless angels.  There are a few exceptions, but for the most part, faceless is my favorite.

A few cartoon-drawn angels make the cut, but even those have certain rules they need to follow.  No noses, only closed eyes or basic black dots for eyes.  No whites of the eyes and irises, please.  Yes, I have a problem.


But it doesn’t make me any less thrilled when I bring out my own multitude of the heavenly host every December.  I proudly display my faceless angels and love each and every one of them.

Here’s to the faceless angels that “watch” over my family every Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!angel3~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
