32 Ways to Decorate with Stars for Christmas

Stars and Christmas decorating are so interconnected,

and as I curated a collection of beautiful images,

these stars of wonder perhaps began to work magic

in my heart as I pondered the significance of the symbol.

 

After all, we are all made of stardust, oui?

There is solid science behind the assertion,

and, in fact, almost every element on this

big blueberry Earth traces its birth

to the heart of a star.

 

The heart of a star…can you fathom

the powerful creative capacity

within such a heavenly body?

 

The star’s light is actually the result of

the energy released by nuclear fusion reactions

in a star’s heart…these bursts also created the

elements carbon and iron, which make up the

world around us.

 

And how about the Star of Bethlehem

which has become so closely associated

with much of Christmas tradition?

 

That star in the dark wintry sky shone so bright

it frightened the shepherds, who were

comforted by an angel:

 

“Do not be afraid; the star has come to

bring you good, tidings of great joy,

and to show you the place a little

babe is born…and who will give

peace and joy to the whole wide world.”

 

The story goes the great star did not just

flicker and shine but MOVED and LED followers

to a decrepit lowly humble birthplace of a

child who would grow in wisdom and

teach a radical way of peace.

 

Whether or not you believe stories in the scriptures

literally, whether or not your faith acknowledges

the Christmas story, and whether or not you possess

any faith at all, can we agree there is

something utterly wondrous and holy

about this divine symbol of a shining star,

high in the heavens on a silent night

directing souls below…pointing them

to priceless treasure and hope?

 

Because my child-like imagination

is brilliantly ignited at the thought

of swirls of combustive gases,

of awesome nuclear fusion fests,

of explosive bright beams,

of a star illumining a dark sky

inviting A L L

(not just Baptists, Buddhists or

Beautiful Agnostics, but A.L.L.)

to lift their eyes,

to gaze with wonder upon

the whole cosmos born of stardust

with its raging potential

for harmony,

for diversity,

for inclusion,

and for

L O V E

in

bold caps.

 

Because if what I am made of, what you are made of,

what this natural world all around us is made of,

derives from the heart of a star…isn’t that truly

S O M E T H I N G

and

to celebrate this Christmas?

 

On with the star show.
