The custom of bringing evergreens home during the winter began in Germany in the 16th century. Pruning the tree was a part of the preparation process, and limbs were often cut off to make the tree more uniform in shape or to fit into a room. Instead of throwing the pieces of greenery away, the frugal Europeans wove the excess pieces into wreaths.
Before the wreath became associated with Christmas, they were used to reward military success and excellence in ancient Greece and Rome. Wreaths made of laurel or olive branches were also used to crown winners of the Olympic Games. The circular symbol became synonymous with wealth and victory.
Christmas wreaths were traditionally made in a circle of evergreens, symbolizing eternal life. They were also decorated with holly, oak, and red berries. During the 19th century, they became known as "Welcome Rings" and usually consisted of holly, ivy, pine cones, and ribbons.
They have become a holiday tradition in the United States and other parts of the world, inviting the spirit of Christmas into the home along with good luck. We hope this colorful puzzle brings you Christmas luck and cheer.
