Holiday wreaths have a long history reaching back thousands of years. Ancient cultures believed that everything in nature contained spirits. The evergreen exhibited amazing resilience in the face of the harsh winter, and therefore was believed to embody protective qualities. Evergreen wreaths were fashioned to absorb the sun’s rays during the short days. Subsequently, they were used to celebrate the Winter Solstice, as they were thought to bring about the eventual spring.
The Romans later used evergreen wreaths as symbols of victory. As fledgling Christianity began to spread throughout the empire, the believers adopted the evergreen wreath as representing the victory of Christ over the grave; also citing its circular shape as representative of eternal life. Given that pagan cultures were still using the wreath to celebrate the solstice, the tradition translated to the celebration of Christmas, which took place within days of the shortest day of the year.
