Announce the onset of the holiday season by putting up attractive Christmas wreaths on your door. These Christmas wreaths are traditional Christmas decorations which are usually made from evergreens and symbolize strength. The history of these wreaths dates back to the era of the Greek Empire where they were used to represent a person’s rank or occupation. In Rome, girls wore evergreen crowns as an adornment. The wreath basically denoted eternity because it formed a circle with no beginning or end.

Christmas wreaths are readily available and they can also be made at home. You can make your own beautiful wreath by cutting out some evergreens and adding other simple decorations.
