In capturing the Moravian spirit, start by making or buying paper Moravian Stars. These stars, which have 25 or 26 points, are often found illuminating windows or perched above porches during the holidays. They date back to the 1700s when Moravian students in Germany constructed the stars to aid math lessons. The luminescent stars were seen as early as 1747, lighted in windows of buildings in the Moravian community of Herrnhaag, Germany, according to historians.
