Philadephia, PA, October 22, 2015
Thanks to the sponsorship of more than 55 Original Herrnhut Stars from the German company Herrnhuter Sterne and MyBrilliantStar, its Official Partner in the USA.
This year the Christmas Village Philadelphia appears in a new stunning look. The whole Christmas Village will be illuminated in the light of over 55 Original Herrnhut Stars. You can discover stars on the top of each booth, but the highlight will be the biggest Herrnhut Star in a diameter of 1.30 m / 51 inch, which floats high above the main stage.
The cooperation between Hernhuter Sterne and the Christmas Village Philadelphia is one of the biggest sponsoring from Herrnhuter in the USA so far and is strengthened with a five-year agreement. MyBrilliantStar CEO Hartmut Friedrichs said: “We are very glad to have such a good relationship with the Christmas Village Philadelphia and its organizer Thomas Bauer from the German American Marketing, Inc. Attending the market in Philadelphia is a further step to bring the Original Herrnhut Star to the people in North America. You may be curious to see which activities of us will follow”.
Herrnhuter is one of the German Gift Vendors that will be at the market from November 21st to December 27th. Its hut will offer a variety of Herrnhut Stars, as well as modern decoration products from Raeder/Bochum. The Christmas Village is located at the Love Park (JFK Plaza), 1500 Arch Street in Philadelphia, PA.
Anyone who purchases a star will be sharing in a Christmas Tradition that all started in East Saxony over 160 years ago, when a teacher created the first Moravian Star in a private school for boys as a geometry lesson. Traditionally, the star is hung up on the first Sunday of Advent, and remains up until Epiphany, January 6th.
The Herrnhut Star Factory is located in the town of Herrnhut, East Saxony, Germany. The original Herrnhut Star consists of 17 square and 8 triangular points.
MyBrilliantStar offers Herrnhut Stars (also known as Moravian Stars) for Christmas, Weddings and other events, and is Herrnhuter’s Official Partner in the USA and Exclusive Distributer in Canada.
We won't be able to attend the AmericasMart Atlanta Winter 2021, but find us at the CanGift Virtual Show in February 2021! It's already time for the first trade show of 2021. The AmericasMart Atlanta winter market will take place with showrooms from 12.01.-19.01.2021 and temporaries from 13.01.-17.01.2021. As we are based in Canada, and the Coronavirus pandemic is still limiting the possibilities of travel, our showroom at the Atlanta Market will remain closed for this winter season. However, we highly miss the personal contact to our customers and will keep you updated on our upcoming events!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A WONDERFUL, HEALTHY START INTO THE NEW YEAR 2021! It's the most wonderful time of the year and you are the most wonderful part of our business. Thank you for making this – and every time of the year – so much brighter for us. We couldn't have gone through this year without you!
On Friday, Nov. 27th, we are opening our pop-up store in Richmond's Lansdowne Centre! We hope you started well into this Holiday Season! We are super excited and would like to give you an update on the events for this winter. Due to the pandemic, this year's Vancouver Christmas Market in which we always take part in with our booths, unfortunately had to be canceled. However, we found another great opportunity to offer you our brilliant Herrnhut Stars.
