You may or may not be surprised to know that many of the Christmas traditions and decorations that have been beloved and passed on from generation to generation are actually based on history and are symbols of the Christmas story. While we may not often stop to think about the significance of our Christmas wreaths as we hang them on our front doors and windows, the traditional evergreen foliage and circular shape are representations of growth and eternal life.
As with many traditions, the reasons why we do them and the methods in which they are carried out can evolve over time. Today, Christmas wreaths, while still holding the meanings of everlasting life and growth, have also become a way to showcase an individual’s creativity while decorating for the holiday season. Now, some wreaths are square or oval, are made with materials other than evergreen foliage (such as grapevine, flowers, fabric, and bells…just as a few examples), and are adorned with many, many varying types of ornaments, baubles, and other trimmings.
Whether you love the traditional green, circular wreath with a red bow attached or opt for a fancier, more decorative type of holiday wreath, we know that your children will love these Free Printable Christmas Wreath Coloring Pages and can be creative with how they color and decorate them as well!
