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.
Advent Star From http://www.killstar.com
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 🖤
