I do not know , how many of you have this kind of decoration in your window during Christmas time?

An illuminated star , made out of paper , plastic , glass or steel. It can be bought in all kinds of colors . The most popular colors for the paper stars are white and red , and the steel ones , silver and gold. I really like the Gothic looking ones tho. Super creepy.kll

The origin of the advent star known to have originated in the 1830s at the Moravian Boys’ School in Niesky, Germany, as a geometry project!

The star has since been modified into a look more resembling the northern star , than the 110 spiked star it originated from. I know ,110 spikes!

We Norwegians hang up our star lamps in the windows . And they all go up almost on the same day, first day of Advent. This year its on December 2nd!

As I mentioned earlier , The advent start is a big deal here. Almost every house has one , but there are almost sooo many different styles and shapes!

As you can see in the picture above, we also have another advent related decor: The Advent stake !

So since today is the 1st Sunday( out of 4) of Advent, I have placed all the stars and and stakes in my windows !

These lamps really lighten up this dark month 🖤
