What Is A Christmas Wreath
A Christmas wreath may be heavily-featured in festive decorations around the world but children may not know the exact significance of it. Well, you can explain it to them as you help them out with this activity.
The word wreath actually originated from the English word ‘writhe’ which means to twist. The concept of using wreaths does not have any religious significance. It originated from Rome where people hung them outside their doors to symbolise victory.
However, now wreaths have come to symbolise eternity which can be related to the Christian belief in eternal life and resurrection. You could explain this to your child as they’re happily engaged in this activity.
