Since the classical use and symbolism of wreaths,
the meaning and representation has taken on differing views.
The Christmas wreath has come to convey its own set of meanings in modern times.
It's circular shape represents eternity since it is without beginning or end.
When Christmas wreaths are decorated with evergreen leaves
they symbolize everlasting life and God's everlasting love.
The Christmas wreath has become a sign of welcoming and acknowledges holiday cheer for this season
that emphasizes generosity, giving, and the gathering of loved ones.
Wreaths communicate a sense of joy and a desire for peace. The wreath on the door brings a warmth to our hearts as we stop to reflect upon the true meaning of this very special day.
Whether the wreath is large or small, lushly green or spare, there is nearly always a splendid bow to wrap up all the many meanings and messages of Christmas.
