People Are Decking the Halls With Baby Yoda as a Christmas Tree Topper

Decking the halls has gotten even better thanks to Baby Yoda. The beloved character from The Mandalorian (whose name was recently revealed to be Grogu) is at the heart of a holiday trend that has people topping their Christmas tree with Baby Yoda dolls. By opting for a Star Wars-themed topper as opposed to the conventional angel or star, the results are a fun twist on tradition and totally cute.

Placing Baby Yoda atop your tree offers a surprising number of additional decor options. While some people prefer to just stick him at the top and call it a day, others use his posable arms to hold bauble ornaments. Some will even hang a bulb from the ceiling—a short distance away—and then position his arms so that it looks as though he’s trying to summon the bauble using the Force. And finally, some decorators get Grogu into the holiday spirit by placing antlers on his head or a Santa hat. You can't go wrong with how you showcase Baby Yoda.

If you’ve got a Baby Yoda doll and a Christmas tree, you’re all prepared to take on this trend. Scroll down for some adorable inspiration.
