Christmas Wreaths

I love Christmas Wreaths!  I have several that I take out for Christmas decorations.  They are not homemade wreaths but some I have found on sale over the years that I thought I had to have.  I did some research and found out that hanging a wreath at Christmas is a century's old tradition.  According to Elisabeth Ginsburg on www.naturehills.com, "Most wreathes are circular, and the circle has long been symbolic of the unbroken span of eternity, as well as the circular nature of life itself.  Used in mid December at the time of Winter Solstice, the circle symbolizes the certainly that the endless cycle of seasons will once again bring the return of light."  Here are a few of my Christmas wreaths from my home.

My mother-in-law gave me this grapevine wreath over twenty years ago.

Even my DH loves wreaths!  Look at these welcoming driveway gates that he built!

Happy Holidays!


  1. What a beautiful way to show the Christmas Spirit in your house.

  2. Lottie, thank you for your recent visits and comments! And welcome to Blogland! It looks like you are off to a great start. I love your blue "cottage" and pretty holiday wreaths. Also, thanks for sharing that coupon website. I am going to have to check out that Bath & Bodyworks coupon you posted about because there is something I want there! :)
