Atmospheric Christmas stars with a long tradition
Christmas stars have a long and solid history in Sweden. Ever since the 1940s, when the advent star had its big breakthrough, we have stuck to the tradition. If you want to be really traditional, an Advent star or Christmas star should be hung in the window at the first Advent and taken down thirteen days after Christmas.
Decorate with a hanging advent star
A lot has happened with Christmas decorations and decor since the advent star was introduced. Today, the range is more or less endless with variations in both colour, shape and material. The classic choice, in terms of material, is a Christmas star in brass. After all, the most common is a hanging advent star in white or red paper. It has also become increasingly common to have advent stars on feet that we decoratively place in, for example, the window or on the chest of drawers. Lightshop.com has a large selection of both table stars and window stars in a variety of variations from some of the most established brands such as Star Trading, Konstsmide and PR Home.
A modern Christmas star in the window
In addition to the large variety of colors, more modern versions have also found their way into homes. It is no longer unusual to have a Christmas star in metal, wood or glass. In line with the continued development of LED lighting, new doors have also opened for Christmas stars and of course Christmas lighting in general. Since LEDs do not generate the same heat, it is now possible to make smaller and slimmer versions of, for example, paper stars, which would otherwise be a fire hazard.
Over time, Advent stars have become more than just a Christmas decoration. In many homes, the Christmas decoration starts earlier in the year. It is not unusual for stores to highlight and display their Christmas assortment of advent stars as early as the end of September. There are also clear trends in Christmas lighting, which makes it easier to combine your Advent star with, for example, Advent candlesticks and string lights in a uniform style.
