This Baby Yoda tree topper is extra cute as it looks like he's using the Force to make a Christmas tree ornament float midair.

Forget stars or boring old angels. If you're setting up a Christmas tree in 2020, there's only one way to take things to the absolute next level, and that's Baby Yoda

Yep, The Mandalorian's breakout star The Child seems to be a popular topper for Christmas trees this year. 

Yep, that's right. For some strange reason -- maybe the fact that Christmas tree baubles look like eggs -- Baby Yoda on Christmas trees is becoming a thing.

I suppose it makes sense. The second season of The Mandalorian has meant that Baby Yoda's star has continued to shine in 2020. Just recently the Star Wars community went ballistic when fan favorite Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) made her live-action debut in The Mandalorian episode titled The Jedi. In the episode, Mando (Pedro Pascal) continues his quest to bring Baby Yoda (aka The Child) to former Jedi Ahsoka Tano in the years following Return of the Jedi.

Ahsoka communicates with Baby Yoda through the Force, and we learn his real name: Grogu. Ahsoka reveals that Grogu was raised in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, and was trained by many masters. Grogu was hidden when the Empire Order 66 killed off most of the Jedi, as depicted in the 2005 Star Wars movie Revenge of the Sith.

Recently, fans also got to make their own homemade blue space macarons as seen in The Siege episode of The Mandalorian, thanks to the Binging with Babish YouTube show. Perfect for any holiday cookie swap. 

Now fans are sharing photos of their Star Wars holiday decor, which includes Baby Yoda as an adorable Christmas tree topper.  

Here's a roundup of the best fan photos of The Mandalorian's Baby Yoda is topping Christmas trees in 2020.

The Mandalorian debuts new episodes every Friday on Disney Plus. Be sure to read our episode recaps so you don't miss a thing.
