Picking out and decorating a Christmas tree is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season.

Though I know that everyone's Christmas tree preferences are different, I personally like to set up a real tree with a big, glowing star on top.

Because traditions can vary so much from person to person, it came as no surprise to find out that my Christmas tree can actually say a lot about who I am as an individual.

Just like your gift-giving can unveil insights into your relationship, your Christmas tree can reveal secrets to your personality.

Whether you prefer an artificial tree, a Charlie Brown tree, or even the biggest tree you can find, each Christmas tree says something about the type of person you are.

Scroll through below for this exclusive look into the meaning behind each type of tree. I couldn't believe how spot on mine was.

And if more than one apply, you can get even deeper insight into your personality!

What type of tree do you prefer? What does your Christmas tree say about you? Let us know in the comments.

1. Star on Top

The best three words to describe you are: moral, leader, and strong.

As a person who likes a star on top of the tree, you place a large amount of stock in destiny and following your guiding star.

You have a strong belief system, and you often look for 'signs' around you to point you in the right direction.

Many times, you think of yourself as a guiding star, stepping up to take a strong leadership role.

You also have a strong moral compass that you use in making important life decisions.

2. Angel on Top

The best three words to describe you are: spiritual, kind, and charitable.

Putting an angel atop your tree shows that you have a strong spiritual side, and that you aren't afraid to let the world know.

You are a kind soul, who knows how to take care of others and make them feel special.

People will often turn to you in times of need. They know you have a charitable heart, and that you will be there to support them.

3. Artificial

The best three words to describe you are: practical, planner, and organized.

Whether you pick the artificial tree because you don't like the mess of pine needles, or because you don't like chopping down live trees, your choice points to you being extremely practical in nature.

It makes much more sense to you to invest in something that will last year after year, showing that you are a long-term planner.

And at the end of the holidays, you can stay neat and organized by putting your tree away quickly and easily.

4. Too Big for the Room

The best three words to describe you are: ambitious, grand, and unafraid.

When picking out a tree, you are never worried that it will be too big. Your ambitious personality reassures you that you can, in fact, make it work.

You like to dream big, never afraid of failure. Your mind works on a much more global scale.

In fact, you don't worry about failure because you don't think of your mistakes as failures. Your extra-big Christmas tree is simply an expression of your grandiose nature.

5. Charlie Brown

The best three words to describe you are: unique, quirky, and optimistic.

Like Charlie Brown who was drawn to the tiniest of saplings, you are a person who can find the good in any situation. You are a glass-is-half-full kind of person.

You also aren't afraid to think outside the box, showing off your creative, one-of-a-kind imagination.

People are often drawn to you for your quirky sense of style and humor. You are a fun (and funny) person to be around.

6. Perfectly Symmetrical

The best three words to describe you are: deliberate, structured, and visual.

As someone who likes things to appear just right, you rely on your strong visual aesthetic.

You enjoy structure, and probably thrive in environments where discipline and order are part of the description.

You also don't make decisions lightly, choosing each word, action, or decoration extremely carefully.

7. A Ton of Lights

The best three words to describe you are: outgoing, colorful, and bold.

Unafraid to let your true light shine, you think of your tree just as you think of your personality - big, bright, and bold.

You are a performer at heart, and definitely don't shy away from being the center of attention.

Your outgoing nature makes you fun to be around, and your ability to tell a great story (or joke) makes you a hoot at holiday parties.

8. Homemade Ornaments

The best three words to describe you are: creative, earthy, and open.

If your Christmas tree is full of homemade ornaments, it shows that you aren't afraid to reveal your creative side to the world.

Your life is an open book, and people flock to you for honest opinions and honest answers. They also know that you will keep an open mind at all times.

You are also quite in touch with nature and your environment, making practical use of the things around you in your DIY undertakings.

9. Everything but the Kitchen Sink

The best three words to describe you are: over-the-top, fun, and carefree.

You are going to put every last light and decoration on that tree, and you don't care what anyone else thinks about it. You are going to make sure it is the most ostentatious thing that anyone has ever seen.

And you are going to have a great time while you decorate. You have a fun-loving and carefree spirit.

People love spending time with you, because they know it will always be a blast.

10. Do-It-Yourself

The best three words to describe you are: artistic, handy, and charming.

You would much rather make a one-of-a-kind tree yourself than rely on something from a tree farm or a store.

Your brain works in a very artistic way, but you have the skills necessary to make your vision a reality.

Your do-it-yourself mentality reveals your inner charm. And what could be more charming than a DIY Christmas tree?

11. Traditional

The best three words to describe you are: comfortable, homey, and secure.

If you like to do things the old-fashioned way with your tree, it's only because you love the simple comforts that come along with tradition.

You value your friends and family highly, preferring a night in with loved ones over a night on the town with strangers.

You possess a great confidence about your preferences. You know what feels good, and you're sticking with it.

Your Christmas tree can truly reveal some amazing things about your personality.
