Wreath Christmas Cards

Sort By

The wreath is a holiday tradition that predates Christmas. In classical times the wreath was a symbol of status and victory. In Christianity it’s circular shape symbolizes eternity and perfection. It is a popular symbol for Advent as well as Christmas and can be associated with harvests too.


In modern times secular uses of the wreath can come in the Fall, with gold, red and the brown of autumnal plants being popular colors. Past the Thanksgiving holiday the wreath will take on the colors of  green holly and pine boughs, gold-brown pinecones, and red holly-berries. More recently, white or silver wreaths representing snow-covered decorations are being displayed. Wreaths are intrinsic to holiday displays, and so it makes sense that the Christmas wreath card would be intrinsic to seasonal cards.

Wreath Christmas cards are available in all the color variations that wreaths are. They don’t even have to be Christmas related -- gold and red wreaths are popular for Thanksgiving Day cards too. But for a Christmas card, the green pine wreath with red bow can be as emblematic of the holiday season as the Christmas Tree; which is appropriate since one theory of the origin of the Christmas wreath is that the wreath was made from the cuttings leftover from trimming back the Christmas tree. Wreath Christmas cards of a brightly colored wreath on a door are as welcoming an image of the holiday as paintings of the warm glow of the family fireplace. As mentioned above, images of the white or silver frosted wreath can evoke the wonder of the snowy season that comes with the holiday (in the Northern hemisphere anyway).

When looking for just the right card for Christmas, don’t overlook wreath Christmas cards. For symbolic or literal representations of the holiday, traditional or secular imagery, welcoming warmth or frosty delight, the Christmas wreath is as seasonal as the Christmas Tree or Santa and his sleigh. And just as merry.
