The Symbolism Behind Christmas Greens

One of the oldest winter holiday traditions is decorating your home with fresh greenery. But do you know the symbolism behind some of the most common greens used to bring in the holiday season?

Since ancient times (even pre-dating Christianity), evergreens have been associated with celebrating the winter season and revered for their beauty at a time when most other plants have gone dormant. The tradition of decorating one’s home with evergreen branches, which represented everlasting life and the hope for the return of spring, originated from many different cultures worldwide. The following greens were used to add additional meaning to traditional arrangements.

Whether you are interested in using fresh-cut greens for their traditional symbolism or simply for their fragrance and beauty, Gasper Home & Garden Showplace is the place to visit for bunches of winter greens that are fresh-cut daily during the peak holiday season. Take home our greens to create your holiday decorations, or pick up one of our great selections of pre-made and custom holiday arrangements to magically transform your home for the holidays.
