This is my Christmas wreath on our front door. Have you ever wondered what the meaning of hanging a wreath is? While I could guess, I decided to do some short research. Here is what I learned:

~Wreaths are a symbol for the never-ending love of Jesus Christ. (I like that)
~The evergreens used symbolize the strength of life as evergreens remain green all year long. (I like that too)
~Things like pine, yew or holly symbolize immortality – I’d prefer to think of it as salvation for eternal life. Cedar symbolizes healing or strength.

So – now I know a little more and will realize this tradition has a good biblical meaning that I will share with my children as well.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Very pretty wreath. That's the first time i heard about the meaning of the wreath. How lucky the children are to have a mom who is teaching them about Christ. It is the best gift you will ever be able to give them.It will take them in to eternity. Dee

Sorry I had to delete that last post, I'm on my husbands laptop and I despise it...I put the cursor somewhere correcting something then when I typed your word verification, I typed it in the post and didnt notice it till I looked at the posted comment...I do believe I'm getting old!
Have a blessed day!
