Christmas Wreath Origin

Using Christmas wreaths for decorative purposes has been a tradition held for centuries. While the wreaths of today can be made from a number of natural and artificial materials, they used to only be created with fresh evergreens. Not coincidentally, evergreens are green in color throughout the entire year, making them the perfect choice. The word itself, wreath, comes from an English word that meant to twist, as in into a circle, which is the shape of wreaths.

For Christians, Christmas wreaths were placed in and around the home to symbolize Christ. The circle was representative of never ending life or eternity, given the shape that didn’t not have neither a beginning nor an end. Origins hold that Christmas wreaths would have four candles, three on the exterior and one in the center. The middle candle would be lit on Christmas Eve to represent the arrival of Jesus Christ. In the early nineteenth century, evergreens were arranged in crosses or wreaths and placed on graves in honor of the deceased. These were also taken home to be used as decoration within the home.

Aside from being used as decorations, wreaths were, and still are used as gifts for loved ones. They are a lovely and festive way to show off the colors of the season. There are several designs and styles of wreaths to choose from. The classic style wreaths contain evergreens with large red velvet bows. Other styles are more extravagant and include berries, flowers, and ornaments. No matter which wreath design is chosen, they will all bring a smile to your recipient’s face and provide beautiful décor to any home for the holidays.

How To Decorate With Wreaths

When it comes to decorating with wreaths, it is hard to go wrong. Traditionally, they are placed on the doors when entering homes. Wreaths can also be placed on doors inside the home, such as one leading into the dining room or living room. Wreaths can also be placed within windows or above a fireplace. Wreaths can also be arranged to be used as beautiful table displays. These also come in either classical or more fanciful designs, as well as other features, such as candles to be lit during Christmas dinner.
