Advent Calendar Picture Interpretation

Every year my mom gives me an advent calendar at Thanksgiving. Seeing as today's December 1, we got to find and open the first door.
Let's take a peek...
At first I thought it was a colorful turkey baster...

What is this?

Then, I realized that it was a toy top adjacent to a small beach ball. Nick, however, thinks it's a Christmas ornament. I could be swayed either way, I think. What do YOU think?

It is a top.

I could see how that could be a top. Given that tops aren't Christmas-related, I still think it's an ornament.

Every Advent calendar I have ever seen in my 55 years has had a top on it. Tops are Christmas related because they used to be toys that boys and girls received at Christmas. Something like the dreidle (or however you spell it)

Definitely a spinning top. Fitting in light of our new president-elect.
