Comments Off on Deck the Halls: Christmas
Christmas wreaths are a tradition found all over the world, decorating front doors and the table centerpiece.
Throughout history, wreaths have been used in ceremonial events often being associated with strength and endurance. In ancient Greece and Rome, wreaths were used to distinguish a person of rank or status, being used as crowns in the Olympic Games.
In Eastern Europe, evergreen wreaths were lit up through cold winters to speed up the arrival of Spring and the sunshine and warmth it brings.
In Christian tradition, wreaths are used in the four-week lead up to Christmas, with the wreaths being adorned with 4 candles, each one lit as a week towards Christmas went by.
Today, the tradition of Christmas wreaths have carried through, but they are much more of a modern arrangement. Now, a dominant feature is the evergreen – a symbol of eternal life. Prickly holly is also seen regularly in wreaths. Some wreaths are decorated with boxwood, berries, pine cones and nuts, while others use eucalyptus and eucalyptus pods for their scent.
Get creative with the foliage and flowers in your wreath this Christmas!
