Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Wreaths
While contemporary wreaths could be made of almost anything, traditional wreaths were made from evergreens like pine, or fir or spruce, and decorated with pinecones, holly berries, fruits, bells or ribbons. Wreaths can be created from live trees or they can be artificial.
Wreaths have a wealth of significant meaning and this has made them popular throughout history. Because they were fashioned of evergreens, they symbolize a perpetual growth, and because of their circular shape, they symbolize the circle of life and eternity.
While people can, and do, display wreaths both inside and outside their home, the front door has become a favorite location. While the reason behind this could simply be to put the finishing touch on outdoor decorations, there is a deeper meaning. It's not only an indication of your participation in Christmas. To hang a wreath on the front door of your home is a visual way to extend an open invitation, both inside and out, to family, friends, guests, and even unexpected carolers, all season long.
Depending on the style of your wreath, it could be left up for the remainder of the winter months. However, if you have a live wreath, it might need to come down a little earlier. There is a tradition of leaving wreaths up until Twelfth Night (12 days after Christmas) or Epiphany (representing the visitation of the Magi).
