The circular design represents a crownlike structure, worn by ancient Romans to symbolize honor during festivals and victory from an exhausting battle. It also represents Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross where a crown of thorns was placed on His head.
The bright red holly berries were also associated with the shedding of the blood of Jesus during the crucifixion. Hung as a garland, placed as a centerpiece or as a tabletop, the Christmas wreath shares to you its evolution throughout history, an important piece to complete your holidays.
