C299 Christmas Wreaths
Issue Date: October 15, 2009
One of the first uses of the wreath occurred in classical times, when an athlete was crowned with a laurel wreath after victory. However, it was the Christians who long ago made
the festive wreath a moving symbol of their faith. According to Christian belief, the wreath symbolizes Christ's victory over death and the forces of darkness. In lands blanketed in thick
forests, such as Canada, wreaths have traditionally been constructed of evergreen, but in Mediterranean lands, it is common to find beautiful garlands of fruit woven into holiday decorations
such as the wreath. The ceremony of hanging the wreath over the door at Christmas has a long and nostalgic history. Indeed, few decorations evoke the hospitality of the holiday season quite like
the traditional Christmas wreath.
