Christmas Wreath Traditions

Posted by Sat, Dec 04, 2021 @ 10:39 AM


"Symbolizing eternal hope, the wreath goes 'round and 'round, And where it starts or ends cannot be found. Woven of things that grow - for life, and hung for holiday delight. The wreath must be left in place from Advent through Twelfth Night."  
- Author unknown


You know the when: whenever Christmas decorations show up in the aisles of your favorite watering holes there are bound to be wreaths available for purchase. Perhaps there's one in storage up in the attic which has been dusted off and hung outside your door? Do you know the WHY? Why use a wreath? I'm sure I've learned the reason back in the day and haven't committed it to long term memory. Thank goodness for internet...again! If you know the significance of wreaths during Christmas season then please enjoy a few of the ones hanging up around our shop. If now is convenient for a knowledge drop on a brief wreath history, we've got some interesting information below!


The word wreath originates from the old English word "writhen" which means "to writhe" or "to twist". Hanging of Christmas wreaths on doors began with Romans as a symbol of status in society and also a sign of victory. Wreaths were often seen as headwear also as women wore them as a sign of pride and victors of sporting events in ancient Greece were given laurel wreaths. Sprigs of laurel sound familiar? Olympic medals are engraved with them even today!

The circular shape of wreaths symbolizes eternal rebirth. What began as Pre-Christian cultures' belief of the power of evergreens to withstand harsh winters has evolved into the modern representation of eternal life and strength of Christ. Christmas wreaths in Catholic tradition are adorned with four candles - Three purple to symbolize penance and expectation, and one of pink to represent coming joy. One candle is lit each Sunday (to represent four Fridays of Advent) preceding Christmas day.  Similarly, traditional Pagan wreaths are also comprised of evergreens with four candles to represent the elements of earth, wind, fire, and water which are lit to ensure the continuance of the circle of life. In modern times the meaning of the wreath is much simpler. A sign of welcome and affirmation of holiday cheer for this season which emphasizes gathering of family, friends, and loved ones; giving; and generosity.

Strong traditions or simply for holiday celebration and cheer; a wreath of evergreens is a beautiful decoration for home, office, indoors and out-of-doors. We decorate our wreaths numerous ways from a vibrant red bow and pinecones to a delightful design using ornaments, plush, and more! A wreath is a perfect way to greet family, friends and the new year to your door!
