A friend made this wooden wreath for me many years ago. I really like it. Sadly, I think this will probably be the last year for it. As you can see the lights are going. He strung lots of lights to this wooden frame and we place it on the garage just above the door. There really isn't a good way to replace a few bulbs, and the strings are nailed/stapled so removing them would be a job. A good portion of the red ribbon is not showing up, and now some of the greenery is starting to go. Hope we make it through the end of this season at least.
I thought it time to talk about the meaning, the true meaning of Christmas Wreaths. We place them in and outside our homes. We use artificial and life wreaths. The shape is a circle which represents the unending circle of life. Traditionally, wreaths are made of evergreen which represents everlasting life. Wreaths are often made of Holly branches, or sometimes holly branches are added to the evergreen wreath for decoration. Holly branches have thorns which represent the thorny crown that adorned Christ's head. The red holly berries represents Jesus's blood that was shed for us.
Peace and Love to you all during this special time of the year.
