The Christmas wreath (also called garland) originated in Germany in 1839. People used cypress branches to weave a romantic wreath looking forward to the advent of Jesus. Interpreting its ornaments, the usage of natural green is supposed to drive out evil spirits, while the red and bright fruits convey a fertile spring atmosphere. For Christians, the circular Christmas wreath represents the eternal and immortal life of mankind. It is said that, if this garland is hung on Christmas Eve, children are being protected from harm by demons during the new year.
