Christmas wreaths were born in northern Europe, from the tradition of lighting candles on round bundles decorated with evergreen that symbolized the wheel of life and rebirth. These wreaths originally contained four candles which were lit on the four Sundays before December. Three had to be purple and one had to be pink.
Nowadays Christmas wreath can be seen on most front doors as a decorative element. They are not difficult to make and lots of different materials can be used.
