Christmas Wreaths

 

For centuries, Christmas wreaths have been a tradition central to the celebration of Christ's birth. Modern day wreaths began with Lutherans living in Germany shortly after the time of Martin Luther. Prior to their adoption into Christianity, wreaths were used to represent the cycle of the seasons. Made from evergreen foliage, the wreaths were lit with candles to represent the endurance of life despite harsh winter conditions. 
 
The Christmas wreath came into greater prominence in the 1800s, when German pastor Johann Hinrich Wichern built a wooden ring with candles to teach children about advent. Each day, he'd light a small candle, and on Sundays, he'd light a larger white candle. Eventually, the large wreath tradition changed into that of a smaller wreath with only four or five candles. 
 
Today, Christmas flower arranging and Christmas wreaths are used for holiday celebrations all over the world. Different denominations have different traditions related to the Christmas wreath. Catholics typically use purple candles to represent the colour of royalty, as Jesus Christ is considered the "Prince of Peace." Most Protestant churches in the United Kingdom and Ireland adorn wreaths with four red candles and one white one.
 
Christmas flower arranging is certainly not limited to use in the church. Many families adorn their homes with Christmas wreaths as the holiday season approaches. Some wreaths are displayed with candles in the traditional sense, while others are hung up inside or outside of the house. These wreaths are also made of evergreen foliages and may include pine cones, winter berries, bows and other adornments. They often are also decorated with flowers such as roses, gerbera, lilies, snapdragons and hypericum. When the weather is looking dreary, a Christmas wreath can add cheer to your day. It looks beautiful whether hung on a front door or as a table centre on a dining room table.
