As a bit of historical
background, the giving of wreaths at Christmas goes back to Roman times.
The wreath was an early Roman and Greek symbol of victory. Soon it began
to figure in Christianity. When Christ was crowned with thorny holly
branches, the white berries changed to blood red. As people began to
use the symbolic wreath at Christmas time, a lighted candle was placed
in the center of the wreath to remind people of the new light of the
world: Jesus, born on Christmas Day. Evergreens were used in wreaths
as a symbol of immortality, because the boughs would stay green when
all else was brown and dead. Evergreens were thought to possess magical
properties and were a sign of enduring life. Our primitive forefathers
brought in green branches during the winter solstice, and used them
in magical rites to ensure the return of spring and new vegetation.
