barn metal star thumb Yea or Nay: Giant Metal Stars

I live in an old neighborhood (my house is 80-years-old) and lately I’ve been seeing these giant metal stars, also called barn stars, popping up on the outsides of people’s homes. I had previously seen them inside, but putting them on the outside is a little disconcerting. Inside the house is bad enough—but unless you live in the lone star state, I say keep them off.

What do you think—are these stars a Yea or a Nay? Do you have a star in your home or on your house? Why? Help me understand.
