Garlands were originally made from flowers and leaves from pine, cedar and spruce trees but the decline of rural foliage at the turn of the 20th century saw a rise in the number of artificial garlands created from synthetic materials in various bright colours including silver, gold, white, green, pink, black, purple and red.
An Advent wreath is a very simple decoration in concept but some are very intricate in design and style, making them very impressive additions to the home at Christmas and New Year. It basically consists of any combination of twigs, pine cones, dried flowers and leaves, fruits, decorative wood, paper or tinsel which are twisted and moulded into the shape of a ring. The finishing touches are added to the wreath by embellishing it with bright and colourful ribbons and bows.
Many years ago it was common for families to make their own fresh wreaths and garlands. Twigs, pine cones, flowers and leaves would be collected and children and parents would jointly set about creating a wreath to decorate their home during the festive period. The most common place to hang the newly constructed festive wreath was above the fireplace or mantel or on the front door of the house.

Where Christianity is concerned, the festive wreath symbolises the coming of Christ in the Advent season. The wreath's circular shape is used as a symbol of eternity. The wreath also has associations with Greek mythology and Roman history.
The wreath displayed during the festive season has been around the centuries and has associations with various religions and traditions, but it is perhaps best recognised for its links with Christianity.
Christians use the wreath as a preparation for the Advent season, the coming of Christ. Records show that the first modern Christian wreaths date back to the 16th century Lutherans in Germany.
A reconstructed from cartwheel was used by Johann Wichem to teach children the message and meaning of Christmas. Each Sunday, beginning with the fourth Sunday before Christmas, Wichem placed a white candle in the wreath and for every day in between he added a red candle to it.
The Advent wreath is traditionally constructed from evergreens which represent everlasting life as the circular shape of the wreath is intended to represent God who likewise has no beginning and no end.
