Moravian Star Lights

Moravian Star Lights

Moravian stars are a popular and beautiful Christmas decoration, but what you may not know is that they have a rich history as well! The moravian star originated in Germany in the 1830s as a craft project which was intended to teach geometry to students at the Moravian school. The paper and glue star-shaped polyhedron design was eventually adopted by the Moravian Church as a representation of the star of Bethlehem and was also used to decorate the first documented Christmas Tree at Williamsburg, Virginia in 1842. Moravian stars have come along way from their humble paper beginnings and can now be found in a variety of colors, styles and materials.

Moravian Star Lights with Twist-In Spires

Traditional Moravian star lights used for indoor or outdoor Christmas decorating are typically made of plastic. Each star has a hub which the spires can be twisted into. These stars are lit from the inside. They are available in a variety of colors and can also be customized with multiple spire color combinations. Some popular ideas for color combinations include mixing the spires from solid red and white moravian stars to create a Christmas themed display or combining the spires of purple and gold or amber stars together for Halloween. You could also hang solid red, white and blue moravian stars side by side or mix the spires together to create three patriotic themed decorative lights.
