A Little Bit of History:

A 6 point star is easier to fold than a five point one.  George Washington's original pencil sketch for the US flag indicated 6-pointed stars.  Betsy Ross, suggested a 5 point one.  When people protested that it was too hard to make, she grabbed a piece of paper, made the folds that follow and showed just how easy it was to make a 5 pointed star!
