“It’s So Fabulous!” CHRISTMAS TRIVIA of the Week: I learned the very interesting history of wreaths this year via Shelter Pop! So, as we close out the 2010 holiday season, here is an excerpt from an article containing fabulous Christmas trivia to take with you…
WREATH ˈrēth n: Something intertwined or arranged in a circular shape.
The etymology of the word ‘wreath’ indicates that wreath comes from the Middle English wrethe, which in turn comes from Old English writha; akin to Old English wrīthan to twist, which makes sense, since wreaths are made from twisted branches and greens.
As with many parts of Christian customs, the tradition of hanging wreathes was borrowed from Greek and Roman culture. Laurel wreaths were commonly worn on the head by Olympic victors and public figures in ancient times. Accordng to Martha Stewart Living, “During midwinter festivals in ancient Rome, evergreen branches and garlands were brought indoors, to serve as symbols of enduring life and to ensure a fruitful year.”
