The Christmas Star Wall Decoration is imported in four assorted colors, red, white, gold and silver. All of the Christmas star designs have “Joy to the World”, a reference to the Christmas song celebrating the birth of Jesus, scripted beneath the star as well as hanging loops attached to the top of the star for hanging on a Christmas tree.

The Christmas Star Wall Decoration (item #A072BA02115) will be used to decorate the home and Christmas tree during the Christmas holiday.

The applicable subheading for a Christmas Star Wall Decoration (item #A072BA02115) will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: Christmas ornaments: Other: Other.” The rate of duty will be Free.
