The Origin and Meaning of Christmas Wreaths
"Advent" refers to the period of waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ, which is the first four weeks of Christmas. The origin of the wreath becoming an important decoration for Christmas is said to be due to a German priest, Johann Hinrich Wichern, who lit 24 candles in the wreath during Advent to count down the days of Christmas, so the Christmas wreath gradually became an important symbol of the coming Christmas.
The wreath's meaning is "eternity", as the circle without an end represents the eternity of the universe, and the flowers must be placed in a "clockwise" direction to represent the endless vitality of Christmas. The evergreen leaves used in traditional Christmas wreaths symbolize people's reverence for the evergreen trees that still stand in the winter, and their hope that they too can welcome the arrival of spring with such spirit.
