Traditionally, red and green are the colours of Christmas as red symbolises Jesus’ blood on the cross, and green symbolises the evergreen tree and its continuance of life throughout winter. However white, silver and gold are also very popular. Holly was thought to protect against witches, and heart shaped ivy leaves symbolised Jesus coming to earth. More interestingly, the Christmas tree was first adorned with apples, nuts and dates, and shortly later candles were added as well.
Every home deserves beautiful embroidered Christmas tree decorations, a beautiful wreath on the front door, bright solar powered candy canes in the yard and a Christmas stocking on the fire place. These are all much loved traditional Christmas decorations. Why not add to the Christmas spirit and hang some beautiful festive lanterns around your home. Chinese lanterns, metal lanterns filled with twinkling candles and soft fabric lanterns are just some of the many styles and designs lanterns come in today. So, add a beautiful lantern or a few to your decorations this year, and fill your home with love, grace and happiness.
