Gorgeous Christmas wreath images to inspire you

Have you ever wondered how Christmas wreaths came to be? Although wreaths have been used for a variety of ceremonies throughout the ages, it wasn’t until the 16th century that they became associated with Christmas. In the 19th century wreaths became very popular in Germany, where priests began using them as tools to teach children how to count the days until Christmas. According to the original tradition, a wreath was put up on every house’s front door a month before Christmas day. Then, a white candle was added to the wreath on every Sunday until Christmas, while a red candle was placed for all the other days. This is why Christmas wreaths are sometimes also referred to as “Advent wreaths.”

Why are Christmas wreaths so important

Nowadays wreaths are no longer used for this purpose. Instead, we look at them simply as an aesthetically pleasing festive decoration. As a result, they have evolved and undergone a lot of changes. You can now find wreaths made of paper, plastic, and even candy, as well as traditional pine varieties. Candles, which were a huge fire hazard in the past, have been replaced by cheap and safe string lights. The innovations don’t stop there, however! The traditional round design has also gone through some alterations! Square, rectangular, and even triangular wreaths have made an appearance in recent years. And, of course, more and more people are opting for DIY Christmas wreaths. After all, what better way to express your unique creativity, than a handmade festive decoration for your front door?
