Origin of the Christmas Wreath
There are several different schools of thought when it comes to the history of the wreath… But one notes that the wreath dates back to ancient Greece & Rome, where members of Greco-Roman society would hand-make ring-shaped “wreaths” using fresh tree leaves, twigs, small fruits & flowers. Worn as headdresses, these wreaths represented one’s occupation, rank, achievements and status. (Wreath translated literally means, “a thing bound around”)
