Its just to decorate the top of the tree. Some people use a star some use an angel. Actually, I think its meant to be a fairy godmother, thats why they usually have a wand in hand to grant children wishes.

I always heard that the Angel was yet another tradition started in Germany and made popular by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. I was told when I was a kid that the Angel used to be used as a gift - that little girls would play with the angel after christmas as a dress up doll.
I don't know how factual this is.
You can always do what my Grandfather (and now my father) did, and make up a good story.
My Grandfather used to tell people he called up Alexander Bell, and told him how to invent the telephone.
