At this point I would like to add a few words about the meaning of the Christmas wreath because it has an important place in the history of Christmas. In the ancient period, wreaths were handmade by people and they symbolized the pride and the victory. People used to make handmade wreaths using evergreen twigs, branches and flowers. Essentially the tradition of hanging a wreath during Christmas is a Catholic ritual. Since its origin, the Christmas wreath has gone through a multitude of changes, but has retained its significance.

In nowadays the decoration used for the wreath used to be nuts, seedpods, pinecones that were considered to be symbols of resurrection and permanence of life. Although Christmas wreath has now become more of a decorative wreath, the significance and importance of the wreath remain undeterred and shall remain so until the eternity.

So let’s keep this tradition and decorate your front door as deserving for these bright holidays.
