Herrnhuter mal anders

HERRNHUTER STERNE

The origin of the Christmas stars

 

The Herrnhut Star, which originated over 160 years ago in the Renewed Moravian Church, is considered the source of all handmade Christmas stars. At the beginning of the 19th century, the first star made of paper and cardboard shone in the rooms of the boarding school of the Moravian Church. Constructed by a mathematics instructor in class, the star served as a communication tool to improve geometric comprehension. Since then, children have been crafting their stars on the first Sunday in Advent, thereby introducing this custom to their families. Even today, beginning the peaceful Christmas season with a Herrnhuter Stern is still a charming tradition.
