Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

Beautiful colour tones - Never understood the Christmas Wreath - what is the significance/symbolism of a wreath to celebrate the "birth of christ" (an Easter wreath I could fully understand!!!)

16 Dec 2013 11:44am

@Jules: one explanation: The wreath has significant meaning for the season. It's circular shape represents eternity, for it has no beginning and no end. From a christian religious perspective, it represents an unending circle of life. The evergreen, most frequently used in making wreathes, symbolizes growth and everlasting life. Holly branches have thorns. When used in a wreath it represents the thorn on Jesus' crown when he was crucified. Bright red holly berries symbolize Jesus' blood that was shed for us.
