Hello Visitor, We are Hartmut and Kirsten; the owners of MyBrilliantStar, a Vancouver based company. MyBrilliantStar is the exclusive distributor for Canada and the official partner for the USA from the German manufacturer who produces and sell the original Herrnhut Stars. We are proud to represent THE ORIGINAL HERRNHUT STAR in Canada and the United States and hold strong contact with the manufacturer of the stars in Herrnhut/Germany to develop new business ideas. MyBrilliantStar offers North Americas largest selection of Herrnhut Stars incl. accessories and spare parts.
Traditionally the star will be delivered in parts and shall be assembled at home. It´s still handmade! It has long been a tradition for families to assemble a star together and hang it on at the days before Christmas. The tradition has a long history and is closely linked to the history of the Moravian Church (a Protestant Free Church). The first Herrnhut Stars were made in the homerooms of the Moravian boarding schools. At the beginning of the 1900s, a teacher made a star of paper and cardboard and hang it up with a candle inside. Later on, making stars was established in the math class and helped the development of mathematical and geometrical understanding, and the designing and creation of three-dimensional geometrical shapes.
The tradition of families sitting together assembling the star and hanging them out on the first Sunday in Advent has a long history and is closely linked to the history of the Moravian Church (a Protestant Free Church).
So the tradition has conserved until today
“We want to let the tradition revive!”
