The Christmas wreath is a beautiful decoration full of religious symbolism from various cultures. It denotes the spiritual belief in life everlasting and the rebirth of the spirit. To Christians, it is a way of professing the miracle birth of the son of God.
Walking through the town we were delighted to see many of the houses displaying a Christmas wreath. Many varying colours and sizes, some were illuminated others remarkably simple. A Christmas door needs a wreath.
We wanted to hang wreaths on our doors and to welcome in the spirit of Christmas and we wanted to make our own.
We have a wonderful member of the night team, Karen who is incredibly talented when it comes to crafting so who better to help us than her. We had such fun putting our wreaths together, choosing our decorations carefully, gluing them down. We sang carols as we beavered away and recalled wreaths we’d made with our children and grandchildren.
Minutes turned into hours and eventually we had a table full of glistening wreaths to adorn our doors. It gives you such a deep sense of satisfaction to create something beautiful.
Our doors are now festive and ready for Santa’s visit.
Have a wonderful Christmas from all of us here at Timken Grange.
