25 Christmas wreaths to make the season bright

Christmas wreath in arc

Wreaths have been a decorative symbol of the Christmas season for hundreds of years. Wreaths can adorn any area of your home, inside or out.

The holiday wreath has its roots in multiple religions and cultures. Some see the wreath as being entirely secular and simply decorative. Others associate the evergreen branches with Christianity. There is even symbolism to be found in the structure of the traditional wreath itself.

Its circular shape represents eternity, for it has no beginning and no end. From the Christian religious perspective, it represents an unending circle of life. The evergreen, most frequently used to make wreaths, symbolizes growth, and everlasting life.

Wreaths are also connected with the pagan holiday of Yule to mark the winter solstice. Yule was celebrated by ancient Germanic and Scandinavian peoples to honor the return of the sun and the seasonal cycle. These Yule wreaths symbolized nature and the promise of spring.

These days it’s common to find any number of wreaths on doors, over the mantle, or hung in windows. They can be made of real or artificial materials. While the artificial ones don’t infuse the air with the same fresh fir scent as an authentic wreath, they can take on a form of high art—and can cost about the same.

There is a wreath out there to appeal to every taste and spirit. Just looking at the 25 on this list fills us with cheer. Find yours, break out the eggnog, and look forward to all the holiday season has to offer. Cheers!
