The Christmas Wreath

“A Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2: 11

The Meaning of the Christmas Wreath

Every Christmas wreath is more than just a’s a special reminder of Jesus, the reason for our celebration.

The circle of a Christmas wreath is a never-ending ring, a reminder of eternal love from our Lord and King.

The Christmas wreath is a sign of welcome, inviting all to enter in…a reminder of Christ’s invitation for all to come to Him.

The middle of a Christmas wreath is a bare and empty space, a reminder of what life would be without Christ’s love and grace.

So each time you see a Christmas wreath hanging from a door, may your heart rejoice in the One that Christmas is truly for!

—Holley Gerth

Now that makes the hanging of the wreath more's not just a decoration, but a reminder of why we are celebrating!

Have a blessed advent Sunday.


  1. Thank you for the reminder of the wreath. So often the decorations go up and the meaning is lost in the hope that the decor is the perfect color, size and up to date.

  2. I too thank you for the reminder of the wreath.."decorations with meaning".

  3. That's been a tradition that we have celebrated for years with the addition of the candles, bringing us Peace, Joy, Hope & Love.
    Lighting of the candle is always done by one of the children and usually we love to have them join us for coffee and cookies.
    I think that's why I enjoy preparing for the month of December not just for Dec.24-26. Enjoy

  4. That's cool. I had never heard that before! Love your front door...really elegant!
