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!

Find our star chains here. See our complete assortment of Herrnhut Star products in our web shop.

Enjoy the festivities of the Victoria Day 2016 everyone!

Canada Day MyBrilliantStar

Every year Canada Day reminds us of the greatness and beauty of our wonderful country. Here are some interesting facts surrounding this national holiday: As one important milestone for Canada's independence, Canada Day celebrates the joining on July 1, 1867, of the colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a wider British federation of four provinces. The holiday was officially given statutory value in 1879 and was first named Dominion Day.
FATHER'S DAY – an honor to our fathers!

Some facts about Father's Day for everyone who has always wondered where this tradition actually comes from. 
Father's Day is a relatively young holiday. That is why the rituals vary from region to region and from family to family. Many children give their fathers little gifts on Father's Day. The children no longer living with their parents, visit the father, or call him. In some cultures, however, large celebrations in honor of the fathers can be held in a large family.

It doesn't matter that something big is organized on Mother's Day. The main thing is that they think of you and feel loved. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be right next to each other, especially in this unusual COVID-19 times. You are always connected in the heart!
