Angels don't just sing at Christmastime. For most Americans, they're a year-round presence. A new Associated Press-GfK poll shows that 77 percent of adults believe these ethereal beings are real.
Belief is primarily tied to religion, with 88 percent of Christians, 95 percent of evangelical Christians and 94 percent of those who attend weekly religious services of any sort saying they believe in angels.
But belief in angels is fairly widespread even among the less religious. A majority of non-Christians think angels exist, as do more than 4 in 10 of those who never attend religious services

That goes to evolutionary psychology. Our ancestors feared the dark because of what was out in it that could kill them. Fear of the dark is left over from evolution. At least, that's what my teacher said in my evolutionary psychology class. (and lots of psychology is guess work anyways).

Fear of the Dark or of the Unknown?

I believe in Angels, but I don't think Angels believe in me! LOL
All joking aside, Angels aren't necessary entities with wings or whatever we are led to belive. Anyone of us could be Angels at any given time, you just have to do a good deed for someone who is in real need of one and if you just so happen to help (because that's your nature) them and in a positive way affected the people you intended to help then you became their angel!
Everyone tries to be Angels on Christmas holidays only, try it 365 days a year! Just like mother's & father's day, it should be every day of the year too!

People in America are blinded by religion...
clearly angels do not exist. If they did someone would have taken a picture or video of one by now. They are mythological beings.
