Some history about wreaths

It is said that the ancient Greeks gave wreaths to the winners at the original Olympic Games. These wreaths were normally made of olive or laurel leaves. The expression "don't rest on your laurels" comes from this ceremony (which basically means, don't stop striving to do better.)

On the other side of the Adriatic Sea (but somewhat later) the Romans had their own traditions. Common Romans widely used decorative wreaths as a sign of victory and celebration year around. When Julius Caesar became emperor of the Roman Empire, his loyal generals placed a laurel wreath on his head as a crown. In fact, our word "crown" comes from the Latin word "corona," which means "wreath" or "garland." This tradition eventually spread to the rest of the world and evolved into crowns of gold and jewels.

Other ancient wreath traditions come from the Chinese, Hebrew, and Egyptian people. These people used wreaths and evergreens as symbols of life and immortality.

Today, we enjoy using wreaths mostly to accentuate our home as seasonal decor. Decorative wreaths and in particular, holiday wreaths and fall wreaths, are the most popular ones. The use of evergreens for Christmas and Advent wreaths and other decorations as we are used to probably started in Spain, Italy and Northern Europe about 200 years ago. Green and Red are the traditional colors of Christmas where the green represents survival and continuance of life through the winter combined with the Christian belief in eternal life through Christ. Following, the Red symbolizes the blood of Jesus which he shed at his crucifixion. Traditionally, Christmas wreaths are hung anytime from right after Thanksgiving and the weeks thereafter and are left hanging for several months into early spring.
