The decorations are slowly coming out. I am beginning to see more and more festivity around. There are a lot of wreaths coming out now.
This is our Christmas wreath.
Together, the circular shape and the evergreen material make the wreath a representation of eternal life. It is also a representation of faith, as Christians in Europe often placed a candle on the wreath during Advent to symbolize the light that Jesus brought into the world. By hanging a wreath on the door, Christians welcomed the spirit of Christmas. Along the way, this became a symbol of triumph over death beyond that of Christ. For the families who hang these wreaths, they’re implying that their loved one’s soul lives on.
And other wreaths I am seeing all around, from the stores to the doors.
Enjoy the magic of the season.
