Poinsettia outdoor guidebook

No Advent season without poinsettia

At the latest in the last days of November, they start to glow again year after year – the big and small poinsettias. They bring a radiance into the gloomy season and arouse anticipation of the contemplative Advent season and one of the most beautiful festivals in the annual cycle. As simple as these poinsettias are, they are simply beautiful and make a pleasant contrast to many elaborate Christmas decorations that have come into vogue in recent decades. This is certainly one of the reasons why a huge poinsettia is hung in front of many churches and sends its light into the darkness. It used to be mostly Protestant churches that chose this jewelery, today poinsettias are also to be found at places of worship and community institutions of other denominations.

But even in front of many single-family homes, every year a star is hung in the entrance area. Religious considerations are then usually not behind, this is about the beauty of this Christmas decoration. Hanging the star can become a good tradition in a family. Even the smallest ones can hardly wait for the star to come out of his storage boxbrought out and hung up in the usual place, even for passers-by rushing past. Devotees then sit by the window and rejoice when the light of the star conjures someone a smile on their faces.

The original – the Herrnhut star

Not everyone who adorns their home with a poinsettia is aware of how long this beautiful tradition already exists. The first star shone already in 1821 in Niesky in the courtyard of a university boys‘ institution. The institution was celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and was looking for simple jewelery that fitted in with the principles of the Moravian Brethren. The Moravian Brethren is an interdenominational faith movement. Because many of the adult church members went abroad as missionaries, there were boarding schools in several places where the backward children grew up.

Because this beautiful star of the anniversary celebration fit so well with the simple community rooms of the Moravian brothers, stars were soon made in the boarding schools of the Brethren and hung in the Advent season. The original star had 110 points. As demand soon developed, the Herrnhut brothers founded a manufactory in 1920 to produce the stars in larger quantities and to export them to many countries. But for this purpose, a less complicated star was needed and it created a star with 25 points, as it is still made today. Today, lovers of the Moravian Star can choose from 60 different models. But if you want to hang your star in the outdoor area, you should pay close attention to the fact that it acquires a star made of plastic. They are stable and are weatherproof. The stars intended for indoor use are made of paper and would be quickly destroyed outdoors.

Think of the accessories in good time

However, you do not have to travel to Saxony to acquire an original Herrnhut star. Of course, the popular poinsettias can also be ordered online. Anyone opting for an original Herrnhut star for outdoor use can choose from three sizes: The smallest star for outdoor use has a diameter of 44 cm, the middle star measures 68 cm in diameter and the largest variant has an impressive diameter of 1, 30 m. Where this star shines, it can not be overlooked.

For your star to be able to emit its light on the first advent, you should check it in time and check the functionality of the electrical system. If you are the proud owner or proud owner of a Moravian Star, you can also order suitable spare parts and bulbs, which are also available as LED, online.
