Happy Victoria Day 2016!
The time has come again for celebrating the birthday of our former Queen Victoria. She, who was also known as ‘’the grandmother of Europe’’, died already in the year 1901, but we still honor her 115 years later in Canada for the great woman that she was.
Her most important accomplishments were that she led the United Kingdom to industrial, scientific and cultural prosperity and that she helped to expand the British Empire to its largest size under her reign.
Find out more about Queen Victoria and the Victoria Day.
For Victoria Day we also like to set up decoration with the help of our Herrnhut Stars, especially with the Canadian colors. Our favorite for this day is the star chain, which can bring together the colors red and white. A lovely sight for every home!
Enjoy the festivities of the Victoria Day 2016 everyone!
Another round of the Virtual Toronto Gift + Home Market is awaiting us in August. As we are seeing many improvements and openings concerning Covid-19 restrictions, large scale indoor events, however, cannot yet take place in Ontario. Therefore, we welcome another round of the Virtual Toronto Gift + Home Market in August. MyBrilliantStar will take part again with a virtual booth and full online service. The show will be LIVE from August 9-12, however our online booth will be accessible for retailers far beyond the live show, from August 9 – September 3.
Happy Canada Day! Today on Canada Day, you will see it proudly flying throughout the country. Maybe you’ve waved a paper hand flag on Canada Day, or worn it as a pin on your jacket. Maybe you’ve even sewn one on to your travel backpack! Regardless of where you see it, the National Flag of Canada stands out both at home and abroad as one of the most striking and recognizable symbols representing Canada.
