    My opinion, The Angel is an Empath,
    Looking down on us to.make sure we are safe,secure. The Angel is white ,meaning pure.
    In our Greek Orthodox we see it as the Guardian Angel.

  2. Kelly says:

    Dirty empath

  3. WiserNow says:

    This one is easy. It’s obvious. The evidence is hiding in plain sight. This is a classic case of an angel with a dirty face… literally!

    There she is, the so-called “angel” who pretends to be all goodness and light, while not really doing anything at all and insisting that she continually lords it over everyone else from up on her lofty perch at the top of the tree. So arrogant!

    Everyone else on the tree has a productive job to do. The tinsel sparkles and lets everyone know what time of year it is. The baubles are unique and add colour and rotate around the tree each year so that things don’t get boring. The small toys and candy canes attract interest and make children want to get closer. The twinkling lights sparkle and look magical. And the tree holds it all together and supports everyone.

    What does the angel at the top do?! Nothing, that’s what!

    She just hogs the limelight and to make matters worse, gives everyone in the room one long protracted present silent treatment with that dead, cold unemotional stare. And it’s Christmas! The nerve!!

    Don’t be fooled, she is a narcissist under that angelic facade.

  4. E. B. says:

    Based on the information provided, she is a MRN.

  5. AnneB says:

    Your Honour, A narcissist possibly a lesser somatic.

    1.Looks down on everybody. Delusion, grandiosity, false sense of superiority. Is it not the Star that as often as not sits atop the Christmas Tree? Your Honour, I understand that in this particular case we have an Angel atop a tree. My case is that this Angel has killed and consumed the Star in a fit of heated fury after wounding. She looks rather portly.

    2. Extensive silent treatments. Need anything more be said, your Honour? Also, note that the Angel has her mouth full at the moment.

    3.First appeared in Victorian England and has remained an ever present since then. Ever-presence, you Honour.

    4.Arch Nemesis is The Star. Ah, Your Honour. See 1. Has anyone in this court seen the Star lately? Your Honour, I have on good grounds that the Star is in fact missing. Heated ignition of fury, hallmark of a lesser N. I urge your Honour to look into this. As earlier noted, this Angel looks very portly indeed.

    5.Immaculately dressed and presented. Somatic narcissist when considered in conjunction with other evidence, your Honour.

    6.Embodiment of serenity and calm. Your Honour, this a misinterpretation of the Angel’s demenour, I humbly submit. But, it is not in fact a facade, This Angel *appears* as the embodiment of serenity and calm only. What we are seeing here is a temporarily fully fueled narcissist, literately full of the missing Star

    7. Behaves as if something is stuck up her backside. Your Honour, that could be the Christmas Tree of course, however, and how to put this delicately, could this Angel be preparing for ablution? Is the serenity and calm that we see just the calm before the storm, so to speak? Are we soon to have incontroversible truth as to the outcome of the ignition of this Angel’s heated ignition of fury?

    8. Is content to be placed on the tree last. All support for my case, Your Honour. I submit that this Angel was indeed content to be put on the tree last, in this instance. That is because she had previously, in a moment of heated rage, knocked off the Star and got rid of the evidence in manner previously alluded to, and therefore knew she was going to the top. So, yes, she was content in that moment. In usual circumstances,this Angel would not show contentment about being placed last in anything.

    9. Shiny, sparkling and glittering – is it all just dressing? Yes, I believe it is, your Honour.

    Has wings but never seen to fly: Lesser Narcissist, your Honour. Could be due to laziness or lack of ability.

      “Literally full of the missing star” – so funny!! 😂

  6. Bubbles 🍾 says:

    Dear Mr Tudor, (Your Excellency)
    First of all, confusion reigns as we really don’t know what “gender” is sitting on top of our tree…. we have been led to believe its a female ! Two faced facade right there !
    Angel means “messenger”, more likely “lieutenant”
    Let’s go with female !
    I wouldn’t trust her…… she’s meant to keep out “evil spirits” … I’ve seen many an evil spirit …..that’s a fail !
    She doesn’t mind who places her on the tree and she’s just there to gather information and report back
    She only works once a year and reaps all the big rewards
    Stone faced and never smiles …..because she has no feelings
    She thinks she’s stunning and angelic, you should see some of her outfits (talk about grandiose) It’s all show !
    Tries to take credit from the others on the tree AND creates rivalry with the female occupant of the house
    Always in competition with the Star and has the audacity of trying to have songs constantly written about her
    The Star holds his shape every year whereas she can get quite crushed when packed away and has to rely solely on others to make her look good again
    The Star’s reflection, beautifies the other ornaments so they all sparkle
    The Star outshines her every time and will always lead the way
    Verdict …. narcissist
    She should remain in the Tudor dungeon and work on her miracles
    Thank you Your Excellency
    Luv Bubbles xx 😘

    The Angel is an Empath whose characteristics and behaviour have been presented here in a malign fashion as part of an attempted smear campaign.

    She does not look down on everyone, but rather OVER everyone to ensure that they are well secured amongst the branches to avoid injury. She also provides a warm glow from above to presents the others in their best light as opposed to having their light dimmed by the crass, loud, and blinking light of other self-promoters. She is content to be placed on the tree last because she puts all others before herself and wants to see everyone in place before she stands guard.

    Immaculately dressed and presented? She has been wearing the same tired frock for years and has endured the same hairstyle due to putting the needs of others above herself. The candle she holds has burned down over time and scorches at her fingertips yet she does not complain. No narcissist would stand for this woefully lacking wardrobe and be denied the very best (and current) hair and nail care to maintain the facade.

    There is considerable effort put into staying sparkling and glittery, but this is not purely vanity. It is the desperate attempt of an empath to remain holding interest and to avoid a lengthy shelf stay, but alas, that is where she ends up each time despite her best efforts. Some years she remains on the shelf while she is triangulated with the Star, who is hoisted to the Angel’s usual position and declared to be “a welcome and satisfying change” to all who will listen by he who has placed her there.

    It’s true she has wings but does not fly. Her wings have lost power over time being denied sunlight, and having been isolated from the others in a limited and separate compartment. Where would she fly to, having been effectively cut off from her friends, family, and all interests she held before she was captured?

    She presents the embodiment of serenity and calm from years of practice walking on eggshells to avoid sudden and lengthy tirades and possible punishment.

    There is no extensive silent treatment. It is shell-shocked silence from having a giant stick shoved up her arse before her responsibilities even commence. Her silence not consent, but taken as such.

    She is not vain or guilty of trying to steal the show. She is an empath who does the best she can for others and herself after being thrust into a role that she was not initially prepared for and does not understand. Still, she maintains the illusion of all being well as she awaits her gift from Santa – a consultation with HG Tudor that will see her escape and secure her freedom.

    Let the Star have it. She will see one day that all is not as advertised presently, and that the Angel really was one.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Very good, amused me.

    2. FYC says:

      Great rebuttal, NA! You have imbued this hollow, false angel with your own lovely empath traits. Well done.

      1. Lorelei says:

        Quite entertaining you two—she has wings but does not fly..

    3. ANM says:

      NA! You could be be a professional, and did a job well done with writing a beautiful essay on the spot.

    4. surfinsybil says:

      Wow… that was excellent NarcAngel! I would imagine that a mid-range narcissist prosecuting attorney would be left sulking… controlling his internal raging fury… as he realizes that he has been severely wounded by an empath.

      Hopefully enough people will donate what they can to the Angel Fund so that she can secure her escape… and not have to be shelved for another year.

    5. BL says:

      I won’t even make my own argument because NA had me at her description of the angel staying glittery to avoid a long shelf stay. I feel you, sweet empath angel…

    6. FoolMe1Time says:

      👏👏👏👏 Bravo NA! 😘💞

    7. AnneB says:

      NAngel, I love both yours and FYC’s arguments. Really funny and eloquent. Probably would end up with a hung jury on this one.

    8. AnneB says:

      “..Let the Star have it…”
      NAngel, the Star is deceased

    9. Mercy says:

      NarcAngel, I was ready to side with FYC but you outdid yourself here. You both made excellent arguments but, through your words I felt the pain that this poor angel has endured. It makes me want to save all the angels of the Christmas tree by gathering them from their shelves and introducing them to HGs work. As empaths, we need to stand up against this tradition and expose the abuse inflicted upon them by the narcissist.

      Seriously though, I think this is the best writing you’ve done. On point and entertaining!

  8. Caity says:

    Your Honour, may it please the court. My name is Holly Garland and I have been called as a witness for the defense. And I daresay, she needs one.

    To suggest Angel ‘looks down on people’, and behaves as if ‘something is stuck up her backside’, is simply not true at best, and a heinous twisting of the facts, at worst. Certainly, Angel has shown many of the outward signs the prosecution describes, but her motives are far from malicious. I’ve known her for a number of years and she is as docile an ornament as one would like to meet. She wasn’t always this way, I admit. Before he met her, she was the life of the tree, the envy of the Christmas party; everyone’s friend, and no one’s enemy. She was kind and thoughtful, nearly to a fault.

    Yes, now she seems aloof, and appears to look down on others, but can’t you see that this is a sham? She’s had all her natural glitter nearly beaten out of her, I say! I’ve seen it, yes, I’ve been a witness to the treatment he’s given her since the beginning—he doesn’t think I notice, but I do! Look what she’s become, I beg the court! She shines and sparkles and, sure she’s immaculately dressed; she seems so serene and calm, but that’s because he chooses what she wears, if she tilts or sits straight on the top, whether she smiles; he controls her emotions and dictates who of us below she talks to…everything, in fact. I admit, he doesn’t exactly tell her, but he doesn’t have to. A look, a sneer, a sarcastic snark and she just bends like a willow. Of course she’s content to be last; except for the brief time when she first arrived in his house, she’s always been last.

    Silent treatments? No, your honour, that is what he does to her. And she takes it, only speaks when he tells her to. Sound extreme? It is, but so is this awful smear campaign the prosecution is guilty of! I’m Angel’s friend, and I’ve tried to get her to leave this Troll in Elf clothing, I have. Particularly after Star came on the horizon. Oh, that witch-in-tinsel was grand, and she took up all the good attention Angel used to get, all the kind words he had for her alone, so it is any wonder she think’s of Star as her nemesis and ultimate replacement?

    Yes, your honour, I’ve tried to help her; she’s my friend, after all. But no matter how many times I reaffix her wings the way they were when she first came, she just won’t fly. She can’t; she’s been trapped on the top of our tree so long she’s forgotten how. I beg the court and your honour, Angel is no narcissist. She’s a chained empath.

    1. BL says:

      Great witness statement, Holly Garland! 🌲

    2. Violetta says:

      The placement of that tree top is a kind of abuse. He claims (to the Star and anyone else who will listen) that she is cold and lacking in passion, but after the way he’s treated her, it’s no surprise she’s lost interest.

      Wait til the Angel is shelves and it’s the Star’s turn. She won’t think that position is so enviable.

  9. Chihuahuamum says:

    That dirty angel! I voted narcissist bc the tree top angel tries to act all angelic but really is a somatic dirty angel. She pretends to grace everyone with blessings at christmas but instead basks in the glory of all sitting atop the tree with the twinkling christmas lights spolighting her. Dont be fooled by her angelic looks! Somatic dirty angel all the way!

  10. K says:

    Empath all the way! Narcissists love to generate drama, chaos and discord.

    1. Embodiment of serenity and calm (opposite of drama)
    2. Is content to be placed on the tree last (going last wouldn’t fly with a narc)
    3. Shiny, sparkling and glittering – is it all just dressing? (she shines with hope and light)

  11. FYC says:

    Haha Anm, I enjoyed your appliance reference of being put in the box for future hoover/use and the potential of replacement by a shiny new ornament. Well done.

    1. ANM says:

      Thanks, FYC. Yours was so much more in depth than mine, and excellent assessment! 👏

      1. FYC says:

        Thank you ANM.

  12. FYC says:

    Your Honor and gentle people of the jury,

    At first glance, the angel on the tree is a vision to behold. Dazzling and bright, she reigns as a symbol of hope. So convincing is she at first glance, one might be tempted to believe in her promise of hope without question, but they would find themselves sadly disappointed.

    Upon closer examination, this angel atop the tree is indeed no angel at all. She is a fraud. Nothing more than a dazzling display of thinly gilded veneer alit with glowing lights and fake jewels accompanied by motionless, pseudo wings. Her effective facade draws the admiration of many, yet as time passes, they begin to realize she is but a hollow shell. Her behavior is questionable at best. Unlike genuine angels, this imposter is betrayed by her haughty superiority, always demanding to remain on top with a constant fuel supply that enables her to shine. She asserts her superiority atop the tree and feels entitled, not only to her lofty position, but also of the admiration of all she deems beneath her. Worse still, witnesses have reported she flashes all nearby strangers when they look upward towards her skirt. Such lascivious public display of indecency must be addressed by the court.

    While it is impossible to know all the details of her ongoing competitive dispute with Santa, it is a well-established fact she exerts her control by way of a near permanent silent treatment. Her former colleague and lover, the star, was instantly devalued so that she could mount the tree herself and reign over all. The star was then maliciously smeared and discarded. It has been reported by several eye witnesses that every year this charlatan of an angel hoovers the star the moment they emerge from storage, just to assert her superiority once again.

    Be not fooled by this prideful, haughty, vacant, infundibular embellishment. She is no angel. She exerts control and requires constant fuel. She demonstrates a complete lack of empathy for others. In summary, the angel on top of the tree may earnestly believe she is the world’s shiniest angel, but in truth, she remains an unaware midrange narcissist. We ask that convict her of the same, and that she be charged with fraud and public display of indecency. The prosecution rests.

      1. FYC says:

        Thank you, HG. And thanks again for the fun and educational exercise.

    2. Notme! says:

      Yeah! What she said!!

      1. Chihuahuamum says:

        Yes lock her up and throw away the key!😄

    3. FoolMe1Time says:

      👏👏👏👏👏Bravo FYC! I loved this.

      1. FYC says:

        Thank you, FM1T.😘

        1. FoolMe1Time says:

          You are so talented FYC. You’re very welcome. 💞

          1. FYC says:

            Oh my goodness, FM1T, you are the sweetest.💞 I’m not all that, but I love to write, especially when it’s all good fun. We used to do these kinds of writing exercises in a class I took long ago and it was so fun to hear all the different arguments. I look forward to the judges final findings and sentences!

          2. FoolMe1Time says:

            FYC, your excitement and fondness for writing shows in every piece you write. I’m glad you and others are having fun with it. 💞

          3. FYC says:

            Thank you FM1T😘

    4. surfinsybil says:

      Great job FYC! But I agree with NarcAngel. I believe that the angel’s introduction has been influenced by a smear campaign. Her true self has been tarnished by it. In reality she is a Super Empath and since this has been going on since the Victorian Age, I believe that she has had enough and will soon go Supernova!

      1. FYC says:

        Thank you, Surfinsybil. If she is a super why does she sit in frozen silence? NA, a real super, had to do her talking for her. Pffttt. You’ll be waiting forever for that supernova.

        IRL, I have looked for a great new tree topper for years. I have yet to buy an angel because they all look so overly plastic, cheap and fake, the opposite of what I feel about a real angel. This is what inspired my comment.

        1. surfinsybil says:

          FYC, I was referring to the angel being on the verge of having enough. To overcome her boredom this past year when she was placed on the shelf, she got on the internet. It was there that she had the fortune, like me, to discover HG.

          Her frozen silence… like mine… is simply the incredible patience that she has developed after a lifetime of exposure to narcissists. Her ability to withstand the abuse and still stand strong and shining… testifies to her super nature. My gosh… she’s been doing this since the Victorian age! She keeps being put up there every year, so she must still provide some really good fuel… despite the devaluation she has been experiencing.

          Her narcissistic traits have become stronger with HG’s assistance, giving her the confidence to stand up for herself. Her emotional thinking is kept at bay while she allows logical thinking to stifle emotional reactions while she plans her escape. Don’t take her silence as submission. I believe 2020 will be the angel’s year to escape and let her brilliance glow again.

          1. FYC says:

            Surfinsybil, I love that you are standing up for the tree angel. It is clear, like NA, you are projecting your own kind empath traits upon the plastic angel. Just don’t be too disappointed when you find out she is really hollow. That said, we agree about HG, if she were a real empath, he would be her only source to find her way off the devils pine pitchfork.

          2. AnneB says:

            FYC, most learned Colleague, she is not hollow in the sense that she has the Star inside her literally. In all other respects, I see the merits of your case and applaud them.

          3. FYC says:

            Esteemed colleague, AnneB, what do you mean the angel on the tree has the star literally inside of her?

          4. AnneB says:

            Most learned Colleague The Star is reported missing. No trace. Note the portliness of this Angel beneath the shiny glitter. And her mouth is full. Heated fury, esteemed counsellor!

          5. FYC says:


          6. surfinsybil says:

            *sigh* FYC… you may be right. I do tend to look for the good in people… even when logical thinking tells me they are likely hollow. At least Our Honor is the HG himself. When all the arguments are made, he will know the truth in the end. If the angel is a narcissist, maybe he will derive some fuel by playing with her.

            And yes, I agree the angels are much too plastic and artificial. I had a pretty good one many years ago. I’ll have to try to make an improved version of her since I’m crafty myself. I’ll have to name it Narc Angel with a stream of dainty threads running along her dress, lit by LED lights. I’ll make her solid… not a hollow up her butt angel. She will be standing on a solid looking boulder with “Knowing The Narcissist” glowing on it. My angel will have a firm base to stand strong on.

          7. FYC says:

            Brilliant, Surfinsybil. If you do make this angel, make sure to make several and put them up for sale on Etsy. I’ll be first in line to buy one.

        2. K says:

          Our tree topper is the Death Star. My daughter chose a Star Wars theme for this year.

          1. FYC says:

            K: lol, hahahah, or bahahaha, but definitely not, ha ha ha! I hope you use that as your tree as your gravitar on Christmas!

          2. K says:

            Bahahaha…Merry Christmas, here it is!

          3. HG Tudor says:

            That’s no moon…..

          4. K says:

            Hahahaha….no way in hell that’s a moon!!!

          5. AnneB says:

            Darth “I am your father”
            J.C “Nooooooo….!”

          6. AnneB says:

            Too much, K..but not too much too (not word salad), there is a devlish part of me that appreciates the Death Star as tree topper…

          7. K says:

            Bahahaha…the kids love it. Ornaments: Stormtroopers, BB-8, R2-D2, and Yoda dressed as Santa and Darth Vader wrapping paper.

          8. FYC says:

            Love it K! I can hear the music in the background. It’s no Christmas carol. Sounds more like “Dun dun dun, dun de dun, dun de dun…”

          9. K says:

            Dun dun dun, dun de dun, dun de dun…then Darth Vader makes an appearance and the duel between the light side and the dark side begins.

          10. FYC says:

            K, Ah yes, but does the struggle between the forces of the light and dark sides happen within one character or two or all?

          11. K says:

            Maybe all…I’m not really sure. I have to watch The Rise of Skywalker to make a determination. Kylo Ren seems pretty dark to me.

          12. Violetta says:

            K, that is brilliant!
            When my friends’ kids were little, Daddy played Luke, big sister played Leia, and every time the baby toddled over, they would play Darth Vader’s Imperial March on paper combs.

            (Capt. Hook: They make the baby play Hook! The baby! That’s where the canker g-naws.”)

          13. K says:

            Thank you Violetta!
            Star Wars is timeless and children of all ages still love it.

          14. Violetta says:

            K: Just expanded your avatar do I could really see it.

            Oh my GAWD.

            OK if I forward image to geek friends?

          15. K says:

            Tis the season of sharing so, by all means, forward The Death Star to geek friends.

    5. WiserNow says:

      Your ‘Christmas character appraisals’ are great! Very creative and funny.

      1. FYC says:

        You are most kind WN, thank you very much.

  13. ANM says:

    She is an Empath. The narcissist couldn’t be alone for christmas, so he found an angel. He placed her on the tree high above all of the other ornaments. She is glowing during this magnificent Golden Period. The Star was last christmas; this year, it’s all about showcasing the Angel. She is not engaging in silent treatments, it is just that she can not keep up with all of the bombarding text messages and calls from the narcissist, so the narcissist projects accusations of silent treatments to guilt her from any last trait of autonomy that she may still possess. She is objectified like the star was, and the little ornament that are hanging lower on the tree. Every celebration and season must come to an end. Christmas will soon be over, and the fall if the angel will commend. Off the tree, and into a cardboard box she will go, until next year, when the narcissist decides to either hoover the star, the angel, or get a new shiny ornament to top his tree.
