The Moravian Star, created more than 160 years ago in the bosom of the Moravian Church, is considered to be the origin of all Christmas Stars. At the beginning of the 19th century, the first star made of paper and cardboard illuminated the boarding school rooms of the Moravian Church. Created by an educator in mathematics class, it served to convey a better understanding of geometry. From then on, the children made their own stars on the 1st Advent and carried this custom into their families. To this day it is a nice tradition to start the contemplative Christmas season with a Moravian star.
