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.

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.
