Clebrating the Wreath
Formed as a band with no beginning or end it has signified the undying power of nature, hope of eternal life and the renewal of the seasons and blessings of harvest.
Crowning the heads of heroes, royalty and champions the wreath has been worn as a mark of suffering, honor, victory and valor.
Eventually the eternal cycle of the wreath became an ornament, a symbol of protection and celebration hung over doorways and hearths.
A promise of renewal, eternity and honor.
As we embark on this holiday season let us rejoice in the hope of life, love, and renewal - everlasting in the halo of the wreath.
