Herrnhut (Moravian) Stars continue to be a popular Christmas, Advent, and Epiphany decoration throughout the world, even in areas without a significant Moravian Church presence. Herrnhut Stars are often seen in Moravian nativity and putz displays as a representation of the Star of Bethlehem. Large Herrnhut Stars shine over the altar of the Thomaskirche in Leipzig and in the dome of the Frauenkirche in Dresden. The city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, founded by Moravians in 1766, uses the Moravian star as their official Christmas street decoration. In addition, a 31-foot Moravian star, one of the largest in the world, sits atop the North Tower of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center during the Christmas seasons. Another star sits under Wake Forest University's Wait Chapel as well.
The use of the Herrnhut Stars during the Christmas, and Epiphany seasons is also a tradition in the West Indies, Suriname, Greenland, Central America, Labrador, East and South Africa, Ladakh in India, and in parts of Scandinavia: wherever the Church has sent missionaries.
